Alice Watson, head of marketing, Insurance, Canada Life, said: “Our award-winning range of home finance products has today become more flexible and attractive with the launch of two new Lifestyle Select Options. Expanding our LTVs to cover those aged 55-59 will also allow us to provide options to younger customers who are looking to access their equity to boost their retirement income or perhaps make necessary improvements to their home or garden.

“As with all our lifetime mortgages, this product range allows people to continue living in their homes, while releasing the money tied up in their property. The potential unlocked capital can help retirement plans, pay for home improvements or even help fund lifestyles.”

All Canada Life lifetime mortgage products come with optional inheritance guarantee protection and have a no negative equity guarantee.
