DomaCom’s Senior Equity Release launched in May 2019 following a rigorous 6 ½ year regulatory approval process and the recent development of an accreditation program for licensed financial advisers.

It is the first investment-based equity release to be launched in Australia that is regulated as a financial product, meaning Financial Planners can now use equity release as part of their advice.

We believe our fractional equity release product will be a viable alternative to the limited options currently available which are mostly debt based such as the reverse mortgage model.  Debt models are generally reliant on the availability of short-term global cash to maintain funding, which is mismatched with the longer-term needs of Seniors requiring equity release to fund retirement and aged care needs over the longer term.

The DomaCom fractional model will also facilitate the incremental transfer of property wealth from one generation to another. Ultimately, Seniors will have the benefit of maintaining a reasonable standard of living and not being financially forced to sell and relocate. They will have an ongoing and permanent right of residency in their home and retain the title.
