The UK’s flagship event for equity release professionals

The Equity Release Summit is increasingly recognised as a landmark event in the later life lending calendar – growing in impact, recognition, profile, and credibility.

The one-day Summit, held in the heart of Westminster, continues to be the platform to showcase the positive role that equity release, and property wealth, can play within the wider financial services sector.

Attracting over 300 attendees, the Summit brings together key influencers (ranging from senior journalists, ministers, MPs, regulators, civil servants, peers, and consumer champions) alongside industry professionals and Council members, representing the full equity release value chain.

Organised by the Equity Release Council, the UK trade body and standards setter for the equity release sector, the annual Summit provides opportunities to share best practice and discuss areas of interest – where Council members, and those looking to enter the sector, can connect, network, meet customers, and promote their brands.

Who should attend?

The Equity Release Summit is perfect for a range of professionals including:

Financial Advisers


Digital Partners


Policy Makers

Consumer Bodies


Mortgage Advisers
