Empathy Funeral Plans Reviewed 2019 – Good? Bad? Average?

Empathy Funeral Plans are a new company in the market, being incorporated in July 2107.  

We are reserving judgment at the moment, whilst we review their documentation. Like all plans, they will probably be right for some people and less suitable for others – that is why we need to discuss your situation, so we can match your wishes with the most suitable plan. Here is what they have to say about themselves:

Empathy UK Funeral Plans Ltd is registered in the UK, company number 10891616. It has a sole Director, Louise Bond, who has previously worked within the insurance sector for 25 years.

The Empathy UK Trust has 2 independent Trustees. The fund is overseen by OAC Actuaries, and award-winning accountants Kay Johnson Gee. The Trust’s investments are managed by Charnwood Financial Services, the local representative of St James’s Place. The Trust funds are invested by Rowan Dartington via their dedicate Investment Manager.

Rowan Dartington is owned entirely by St James’s Place and all companies are FCA registered. St James’s Place has carried out a full analysis of the investment process with the Trust and Rowan Dartington and, as such, their advice is guaranteed.

Empathy Funeral Plans offer different types of Plans to suit all needs and budgets, and these can be paid for in full up front or over a payment period of up to 15 years (age dependant).

The main attraction of our plans is that the full cremation fee is covered. A generous contribution is made towards a burial if that is the chosen option.
