DIVERSIFIED financial services firm Old Mutual Zimbabwe has partnered a South African firm to provide a service through which bodies can be easily repatriated from South Africa.
This comes as Old Mutual recently extended its tentacles into the funeral services business.
Old Mutual Zimbabwe CEO Mr Sam Matsekete: “We have already established a partnership with a major South African operator to manage repatriations from that market.”
The new Old Mutual funeral service is an end-to-end solution that includes funeral services, which is an extension the company’s existing Flexi Funeral Plan, an annually renewable funeral policy that pays out a cash benefit to cater for funeral expenses.
Currently, the funeral services business has bases in Harare and Bulawayo.
Plans are underway to expand countrywide.
“We will continue to open branches in other strategic locations across the country.”
