SEQUAL looks to engage brokers online

by BN04 Jun 2008

Equity release body SEQUAL is ramping up its online presence in a bid to engage its reverse mortgage consultant (RMC) community and maintain a high level of skill.

SEQUAL head of education Kevin Conlon told Broker News that while the association will continue to pursue its focus on reverse mortgage, specific accreditation and education programs, it has added the development of its website to its ongoing strategy.

"We're making [the website] more useable, easier to navigate and of greater value for consumers, who'll be able to find capable, accredited professionals in their area," Conlon said.

"We're also seeking to [use the website to] establish a community of RMCs in a space where they can exchange informed views about developments in the market. We anticipate being able to deliver an online forum to the market which will be based on the best practices."
