We’re Hodge Lifetime
We’ve been dedicated to the later life market since 1965. We’ve nurtured a great depth of experience over 50 years and have developed a strong and solid reputation, whilst being at the forefront of innovation. Hodge Lifetime created the very first equity release product in the UK, and today we offer one of the broadest range of later life lending products from any provider. Along with our competitive annuity rates, we can offer the right product to suit almost any need.
We’re entirely focused on lending to older borrowers and the provision of retirement income. We understand that there is no such thing as a typical retirement plan or borrower and our innovative products are designed to suit a variety of needs and circumstances.
We take pride in our work and we do the very best job we can for you. We’re friendly, easy to talk to and we take time to understand you and your client needs. We’re committed to supporting the adviser community, seeking to build awareness and understanding of the later life lending market. By supporting you, together we can make a difference to our later life clients.
Doing the right thing extends to our own people and society. 79% of Hodge Lifetime is owned by the Hodge Foundation, a charity supporting welfare, medical, academic and education causes for many years. This drives us, knowing that by helping our advisers and clients to achieve their goals, we are also helping good causes that are important to us.
Quite simply, we’re not a conventional business, we are Hodge Lifetime.
