Air LLA extends Hodge partnership

Air Later Life Academy (LLA) has announced it is extending its relationship with retirement product specialist, Hodge Bank.

The training organisation for later life advisers revealed that Hodge has agreed to continue as an ambassador firm of Air LLA – further developing its six-year relationship with the Academy and its membership.

In its ambassadorial role, Hodge works with the Academy and its members to provide education and support across its range of later life lending products. Hodge offers a range of mortgages and annuity products for the later life market – including its 50-plus residential mortgage, its retirement Mortgage, as well as equity release options.

Air LLA was launched in 2014 and offers later life advisers access to training and sales support designed to improve knowledge and increase business levels across product areas such as later life lending, equity release, long-term care and annuities.

Air Group CEO, Stuart Wilson, commented: “Back when we launched the Academy in 2014, we were fortunate to have a number of very supportive product providers who understood what we were trying to achieve and where they could add value.

“Hodge was one of those first ambassadors and we are therefore incredibly pleased to be continuing this relationship into its sixth year and to be announcing the continuation of its ambassador role. During the period, we have seen many changes to the market and we know that our members have valued the support Hodge has supplied, and will continue to offer them.”
Hodge business development director, Emma Graham, added: “We’re delighted to be continuing our long-standing partnership with the Air LLA and its members. Having created the first equity release product more than 50 years ago, we’ve always put innovation at the heart of everything we do.

“We know there’s no such thing as a typical retirement or customer, and as the later life market grows, so too have our products. We look forward to continuing to offer Air Academy members invaluable insight, training and greater product choice, to help them best service their later life customers.”
