Bosses at Macquarie Private Wealth have been left red-faced after sending direct mail to a man who died six years ago. His daughter, who asked not to be named, said she received the letter last month. She said her father had a cash management trust, and when he died MPW received a death certificate and probate was granted. “To me it says it is a sloppy process,” she said. “They have obviously not cross-referenced the files to see if people are alive or dead.” She said sending letters out to dead people could cause distress to some people.
