Preneed Trusts

iStock_17240382Lg_tombsFuneral homes have found that their efforts to build their preneed business are stalled by their preneed deposit yields barely keeping up with inflation. One common reason is they have been limited to investing in low yielding investments for far too long.

We don’t think that’s good enough and know that many provinces’ legislation allows the preneed area to be a profitable revenue source by utilizing low-risk investments with a higher yield. As a result of conversations over the years with friends, colleagues and clients in the bereavement sector, we developed an exciting and unique service offering for both Funeral Homes and Cemeteries. Preneed Trusts by Legacy Private Trust allow for low-risk, higher yielding investments to help make your preneed programs more profitable.
