Sponsored by the Equity Release Council, which is the professional body for equity release, and the Later Life Academy, which is the training and commercial organisation for later life advisers, the conference was held on 21 June 2018 at Gloucester Rugby Business Centre at Kingsholm in the historic Roman city.

What is the National Later Life Adviser Conference?

The conference was largely targeted at advisers specialising in the later life market who work with mature consumers and are seeking to broaden their expertise and knowledge. The event will bring together a collection of key-note speakers with proficiency in a range of fields, including the financial services sector, alongside industry leaders, charities, consumer organisations, and political and regulatory commentators.

Topics under discussion included consumer needs, changing products, economic and political challenges, advice and longevity needs, the future of social care and mental capacity, and innovation and software. Retirement presents many challenges and the conference is designed to help advisers to offer the most relevant information.

How to get there

You could choose many ways to get to a conference that are suitable but I always find the best way is to get a Car Leasing Gloucestershire company to loan you a car as it will be a good test dive and if you like it you could keep that one as your main car.  All you need to do is look at links like mphvehiclesolutions.co.uk to get the perfect car at the right price for you.

The challenges for later life advisers

Care funding challenges, pension freedoms, later life lending growth and equity release, savings, wills, LPAs and increases in funeral planning are driving developments in technology, consumer engagement and products. Software for IFAs can help to meet these growing demands. Integral to all these topics are economic issues, political changes, and the sector’s ability to understand demographic and capacity challenges.

Advisers are confronted with constant change, and organisations must find the ideal balance between distributing quality advice and ensuring it is commercially sound. The National Later Life Adviser Conference was launched to guide advisers in this thriving market while broadening their knowledge and to support them when helping older clients with their specific needs and wants.

The programme for the conference promised to be full of quality speakers and a wide range of providers that are highly active within the advisory market. This helped any adviser who wishes to grow their business and develop new relationships. As more advisers continue to develop their propositions, the conference will continue the current exciting momentum in the later life sector.
