As a result of the business placed through Air Club in 2021, members received over £20m in procuration fee payments, with an additional £3.8m of commission paid out to member firms as a result of its tiered membership structure.

Stuart Wilson, chief executive at Air Group, said: “As far as we’re aware £1bn is the biggest ever volume of later life lending business distributed in one year so to be able to announce that Air Club members have breached this amount is a real boost to the team here, but also a sign of the growing levels of activity and business in this space, and that advisers are absolutely vital to the provision of later life finance to consumers.

“We have seen a significant increase in customers, product options and business in the later life lending space, and we anticipate this will continue to grow in 2022 as the sector expands and there is a growing need and understanding of the solutions these products can provide.

“Advice is crucial and, as a distributor, we want to reward advisers for their excellent work and ensure they have access to the best products, the best terms, the best technology, the best training, and the best rewards structure.

“We are here to help and support them at every possible step of the way, and we have a large number of initiatives to unleash this year to ensure they continue to meet their own ambitions and that they get the most out of every piece of business they write.”
