Fast Track 100

The lifetime mortgages sold by this Leeds company allow baby-boomers to convert the equity tied up in their homes into a cash lump sum to fund their retirement. The equity-release products it sells include those of sister company and Fast Track 100 alumnus Pure Retirement. Andrew Thirkill, 60, founded Age Partnership in 2004 and was joined by chief executive Tim Loy, 54, a year later. The firm says its investment in TV advertising has helped drive consumer awareness of equity release and propelled its sales, composed of commission and fees, to £50.1m last year. It plans to grow its range of other products, such as annuities and insurance.
