SHIP rebrands as Equity Release Council
Safe Home Income Plans (SHIP) has rebranded as the Equity Release Council.
A primary reason behind the rebrand is to help promote the sector and offer advice and to educate to potential consumers considering releasing equity from their property.
The equity release industry has remained resilient in these difficult few years, enjoying regular increase as consumers grow ever more reliant on their property assets.
Director General of SHIP, Andrea Rozario, will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the organisation:
“With housing equity likely to be at the heart of many people’s retirement planning, it is vital that as an industry, we adapt to meet consumer needs.
“The launch of the Equity Release Council provides us with an opportunity to make equity release products easier to access and encourage more product development to meet consumers changing needs.”
