About Kevin Woods

Kevin Woods, Equity Release Specialist

There are many financial experts, so why come to me? I think – I hope – that I combine professionalism with an ability to put people at their ease. My greatest satisfaction comes from helping people – making dreams come true when they thought they were impossible, or removing financial obstacles that they thought were intractable. I suppose the most revealing testimony to that is that so many of my clients have become personal friends.

Family man

As a family man, with three children and two grandchildren, I understand all too well the enormous financial pressures on each generation. I am sure this perspective enables me to empathise all the more with my clients, to bear in mind their needs and their goals at all times, and to source for them the most suitable equity release plan.

Financial man

I have been in the financial services industry since 1979, starting at the age of 18 as an insurance agent for Royal London Mutual Insurance, moving to Aviva in 1992 where I eventually specialised in equity release. I am a qualified member of the Chartered Insurance Institute and a member of the Society of Mortgage Professionals.

Friendly man

I think I am a friendly, sociable person: I play in Woodfalls Band, one of the premier brass bands in the country; I help out at my local church; and my professional life very much revolves around doing all that I can to ensure my clients’ financial security and peace of mind. In fact, I often become friends with my clients.

“When Mr and Mrs T decided to take out Equity Release, they were delighted with how easy the whole process would be for them. The decision to release equity from their property to assist their daughter in buying her own home was prompted by an advert in the Radio Times. After searching on the internet for an 'Equity Release expert near me,' the couple came across Kevin Woods, an equity release specialist who has worked in the financial industry for over 30 years and has helped people successfully access some of the money tied up in their properties to achieve their financial dreams and needs. Kevin was so helpful, knowledgeable and supportive and really easy to work with. The whole process was surprisingly straightforward and we are delighted to finally have the money in our bank to help our daughter to buy herself a new home. We would definitely recommend taking out Equity Release to anyone who is considering the idea and we would highly recommend the expertise and compassion of Kevin Woods as an expert advisor.”

Unless you decide to go ahead, our service is completely free of charge as our usual advice fee of 1.99% of the amount released would only be payable on completion of a plan, subject to a minimum advice fee of £1499.

A lifetime mortgage is the most popular form of equity release, and is a loan secured against your home that’s typically repaid when you pass away or go into long-term care.
