Foster and Cranfield Traders of Endowment Policies

Foster & Cranfield was established in 1843 and had the distinction of being the only auctioneer of endowment policies and financial assets in the world. Today, the number of endowment policies still in force are relatively few so we provide sellers with cash offers from our institutional buyer connections. Other financial assets continue to be auctioned in periodic auctions.

We trade with-profit endowment policies issued by a long list of endowment policy providers.

There are many reasons to sell your endowment policy, but primarily these would be:



 Debt Re-structuring

Moving Abroad

 School Fees

When we can make a cash offer this is net of all fees.

In addition to valuing with-profit endowment policies, we also provide valuations for most types of financial assets including family trusts, royalties and lifetime interests.

We are specialists in valuing and offering for auction the following:

With-profit Endowment Policies and Whole Life Endowment Policies (by cash offer)

Life Interests and Reversionary Interests held under Trusts (by auction)

Interests arising from Divorce settlements (by auction)

Income streams – Royalties, poster hoardings (by auction)
