Here’s Some Gossip

  • A good pooled trust works to say “yes” to our clients. Or, if not “yes,” assists our clients in finding the next best alternative. In my experience, Springhill does this the best in Michigan.

    - Chris, Attorney

  • I enjoy recommending Springhill Pooled Account Trusts because they care for their clients the same way that my firm does.

    - Pat, Attorney

  • Because of how Springhill Pooled Accounts Trust personally knows their clients, they are able to serve them better. Use Springhill if you believe customer service is important. That is why I recommend them.

    - Bob, Broker
