Finding beneficial owners of unclaimed assets
It can happen that a deceased person’s assets remain unaccounted for and go unclaimed for a considerable period of time, sometimes indefinitely.
Depending on whether a deceased person made a will or not, their assets should be distributed either according to their wishes, or by way of intestacy.
In the event of a financial institution being aware that an account holder has passed away but their assets remain unclaimed, we provide a bespoke service that will help reunite those assets with their rightful owner/s.
We would firstly ascertain whether the Deceased made a will, and identify who the beneficiaries of that will might be. In the event that the account holder died intestate, we would identify the next of kin entitled to benefit under intestacy law, and trace their whereabouts on your behalf.
