Golden Leaves International Guarantee
When you take a Golden Leaves International Funeral Plan the full cost of your funeral is guaranteed, including the funeral director’s fees and all the disbursements (payments to third parties such as doctors, ministers, crematoria and musicians, for example).
Your money is placed in the Golden Leaves Trust, whose board of trustees have appointed Quilters and Merrill Lynch to manage the funds and Lloyds TSB as the trust’s bankers.
The trustees are completely independent from the Golden Leaves organisation. Their role is to ensure that funds are available to cover the cost of every pre-paid funeral when they occur. This is vital to ensure your money is safe and secure in the trust fund until the moment you need it.
Consumer protection is the trustees’ responsibility and their backgrounds reflect this: Vice President of the Trading Standards Institute, Assistant Director Office of Fair Trading, and a senior position in a local authority consumer protection service are amongst their recent appointments.
