Have you seen our latest TV advert?

We launched our first TV advert in March 2017 and to build on its success we’re excited to have launched our new campaign in January 2018, which includes TV and press adverts. 

We tested a number of different ideas with our target audience and one resonated as being memorable, engaging and (crucially) didn’t conform to the stereotype of older age which is often portrayed in advertising. 

The chosen route was ‘punk’. 

It shows an entertaining story designed to capture attention in a market which has, in TV advertising to date, sometimes showed customers as a stereotype of the ‘stay at home’ type. 

“My latest release….a Lifetime Mortgage” 

The TV advert tells the story of Pete and his wife. Pete’s a singer who’s lived a ‘life less ordinary’ and wants to carry on doing one of the things he loves, playing in a band with his mates. A lifetime mortgage has helped to provide Pete and his wife with the financial security to improve their quality of life in retirement by making the most of the equity that’s built up in their home.

The campaign launches in January 2018, and the TV advert can be seen on a range of channels including ITV3, Channel 4, Dave and Really. The press adverts will be in a selection of publications including Daily Mail, Daily Telegraph and Radio Times.
