The Equity Release Council is the industry body for the equity release sector, which represents over 500 members including providers, qualified financial advisers, solicitors, surveyors and other industry professionals.

It works to ensure a safe equity release market for consumers, by operating rigorous standards for the provision of advice and products which guarantee security of tenure and financial protections.

2016 marked the 25th anniversary since the first industry standards were created for equity release in 1991. Since then, more than 380,000 consumers have taken out an equity release plan from Council members, drawing on over £19bn of housing wealth.

The Council also works with consumers, industry and policy makers to improve awareness and understanding of equity release and the potential for housing wealth to help solve many of the financial challenges facing people over the age of 55 across the UK.
