Important Considerations

Know where your money is going.

Not all providers are equal.

There are only a few providers in Michigan who offer pre-need master trust services. That means your choice of providers is very important. After all…this is a business decision that will impact your income as well as your reputation.

Here are some things you’ll want to consider:

Fees. How much are you being charged to trust your pre-need contracts? Contract paperwork is available for free through Abbit. You also don’t have to pay a membership fee to do business with us. You simply pay a straightforward management fee.

Accountability. Who is watching over your money? Your money receives complete oversight from multiple parties when you invest with us. Abbit is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The deposited funds are held in escrow by a trustee, with Abbit directing the investments. Not all providers have these checks and balances. That’s important, because they protect both your financial safety and your reputation.

Investment experience. Abbit has been doing this for over 30 years. Investing is not a sideline: it is our core business. Our investment philosophy is informed by research-based data. We will help you maximize your return for the level of risk you are comfortable taking.

Service. Who will be there to help? Our friendly, experienced customer service team will provide answers in person, on the phone or via email. You can also log in to your online account any time to run reports and access information.
