Tony, aged 63 has enjoyed a long and varied career within the media sector. Working with large well-known organisations such as the BBC and also as a freelance broadcaster, he is currently semi-retired.
Tony was looking for a financial solution that would allow him to raise capital to help boost his income, carry out home improvements and ease him into a very active retirement. His many pastimes include gardening, enjoying good food & wine, the performing arts, music and film. He also finds the time to study for a degree with the Open University.
After carrying out his own extensive research, Tony approached several independent financial advisers, deciding to proceed with Roger Wash, specialist retirement adviser at Bower Retirement Services. Having thoroughly reviewed his circumstances and considered various options, Roger recommended the Lump Sum Lifetime Mortgage from Hodge Lifetime.
Since taking out the Lump Sum Lifetime Mortgage, Tony has been very pleased with the service he has received from both Hodge Lifetime and Bower Retirement Services. Tony was impressed by the plan features, particularly the Flexible Repayment Option, this was especially appealing as it is an optional feature, utilised as and when finance or circumstances dictate.
Tony feels that taking out this plan has really made a difference to his lifestyle, allowing him to confidently enjoy his many pastimes in retirement.
