Hodge joins TrigoldCrystal Equity Release system

The TrigoldCrystal Equity Release system is a new tool for selecting Equity Release products using a 'benefits driven' sourcing engine. The new end-to-end Equity Release advice system begins with a client lifestyle questionnaire; enables product selection based on personal requirements not just cost, and allows direct, online submission of applications.

Jon King, managing director of Hodge Lifetime, commented: "We recently reported an increase of introductions to equity release via advisers which is great news for the intermediary market. Now, with the launch of the TrigoldCrystal system there is a massive opportunity for more intermediaries to make these products available to their clients. There are many intricacies with equity release products but this system offers a unique sourcing engine that allows advisers to search and select products not just on narrow terms of cost but based upon specific client requirements. We're delighted to be working with TrigoldCrystal and to be a part of this innovative new system."
