Free2 – Give us your feedback

And receive a £25 Amazon voucher as a thank-you

As a new brand in financial services, we’re here to deliver new products for our chosen market – those aged 55 and over with access to their pensions who want to do more in their retirement.

In previous articles we’ve spoken about our first product offering, the Over 55s Unsecured Loan, which we created to address a glaring gap in the market, and we’ve also spoken about our latest product, the Equity Release Advice Service which provides consumers over 55 with expert independent financial advice, covering the whole of the UK equity release market.

Now, in this, our final article in the current series, we’d like to hear from you.

Tell us your thoughts & help us shape the future of over 55s financial products

We’re asking Silversurfers readers about their experiences of looking for and choosing financial products for the over 55s. We’d also like to get your feedback regarding your interest in a brand, such as free2, which presents a special range of products and services which addresses the specific needs of our age group.

What are the specific needs of the over 55s that you feel could be better addressed?

free2 has launched a unique unsecured loan for the over 55s which fills a gap in the market, both in terms of size of loan and length over which it can be repaid. Previously, equity release was the only viable option but that requires re-mortgaging your property and paying interest for the rest of your life.

What other specific needs do you think could be better addressed for the over 55s?

How would you like to engage with a specialist over 55s brand?

free2 has launched an online service with a human touch. We aim to pass on the efficiencies from using the latest technology for the benefit of customers but there’s always a real person at the end of a chat or phone line.

What other ways would you like to engage with a specialist over 55s brand like free2?
