Having worked in financial services for the last 15 years, Chris has held business development roles at multiple blue chip organisations including Zurich, and AEGON, more specifically the last 7 years specialising in equity release.
Prior to joining Pure Retirement Chris dedicated 3 and a half years to one of the most successful Equity Release brokers in the country, Age Partnership. As a senior equity release advisor he excelled through his ability and knowledge of the market and in his time there helped over 1400 clients to release in excess of £50 million, which in turn has given him a unique and unrivalled insight into the industry and outlook when it comes to dealing with clients.
Joining Pure Retirement in 2014 as a Business Development Manager Chris has helped grow the company’s market share significantly and Pure now complete on 1 in every 10 equity release plans taken out in the UK today. This is partly due to the Chris’ understanding of the issues brokers face and advising them on how to build their businesses. In his current role as Head of Business Development he helps to forge first-rate, long lasting relationship with partners and helps to provide concise and unique insight into the broker market.
