CHICAGO, Dec. 10, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Reverse Mortgage Daily, an Aging Media Network publication, is pleased to announce HEQ — RMD's first annual industry conference for reverse mortgage and home equity access professionals. HEQ is a full-day event dedicated to the future of home equity access in retirement (https://reversemortgagedaily.com/event/heq).
HEQ will be held on June 18, 2020 in Chicago at the event venue Convene, located at 311 W. Monroe Street in the Chicago Loop. The full-day program will feature panel discussions among industry leaders and professionals as well as tabletop exhibit space, a pre-event evening gathering, and networking opportunities throughout the day.
The event will provide new and fresh perspective on industry trends that are shaping the future of home equity access in retirement. Attendees will learn how industry-leading players are marketing reverse mortgages and other alternative home equity access products, how the competitive landscape is changing, and will hear from thought leaders as to the future of home equity in retirement and planning.
"Home equity finally has a place in the national retirement conversation, and with this new HEQ event we will be moving this conversation forward," said John Yedinak, founder of Reverse Mortgage Daily and its parent company Aging Media. "We all need to be looking broadly at the retirement landscape and how home equity generally, and reverse mortgages specifically, can be a critical part of the picture for many Americans."
A growing Need for Home Equity Access
According to an issue brief published in 2017 by the Center for Retirement Research at Boston College, home equity is an underutilized asset, and the "largest store of savings for most households entering retirement." The brief concluded that households entering retirement will increasingly need to tap their financial assets and home equity to maintain their living standards, for example by downsizing or taking out a reverse mortgage loan. The Urban Institute came to a similar conclusion, stating in a 2017 study that "home equity has the potential to be a major source of financial security for U.S. households."
HEQ is designed to draw industry executives and professionals who deliver home equity access products ranging from reverse mortgage lenders to both traditional and alternative home equity products. Additional attendees will include financial institutions, institutional investors, title companies, technology firms, law firms and loan officers delivering these products to the marketplace.
Super early bird tickets to HEQ are on sale now through December 31, 2019 and can be purchased on the event website (https://reversemortgagedaily.com/event/heq).
Registered attendees are also welcome to attend a complimentary happy hour the evening before the HEQ conference, on June 17, 2020 from 6 - 8 p.m. at Buddy Guy's Legends, a historic Chicago venue. Refreshments and light Hors d'oeuvres will be served.
