Trust, Estate, and Investment Services at High Plains Bank

High Plains Bank's New Trust, Estate, and Investment Services:
Another Way To Positively Impact Communities

In November, 2022, High Plains Bank established the Trust, Estate, and Investment Services department. This new department offers administrative and investment services for personal trusts, estate and decedent's trust administration, investment management accounts, conservatorships, and managed or self-directed IRA’s. The Trust, Estate, and Investment Services team brings together over eighty-five collective years of fiduciary and investment experience and is headed up by Jane Cox, Senior Vice President and Trust Officer. 

Jane joined the High Plains Bank team in early 2022. She has extensive banking industry experience, thirty-one years specifically in Trust and Wealth Management serving the greater Longmont community. Jane graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Business and Finance. She currently serves as the Chair of the Longs Peak Hospital Foundation Board. Previously, she was active on the board of the OUR Center of Longmont Board, Friends of the Longmont Senior Center, and St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.

"The Trust, Estate, and Investment Services department is another way that High Plains Bank is positively impacting our communities and represents our vision of doing the right things for our customers,” shares Jane Cox. “I’m proud to be part of such an experienced and community-involved team of professionals."

"Jane and her team's approach to serving customers with compassion align closely with the bank's core values,” says John Creighton. “We could not be more excited to have Jane as part of our senior leadership team."

Bowler, JD, Trust Officer: Originally from Idaho, Robbin ventured to Illinois for college at The Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University and then headed back west to finish her education at the University of Colorado School of Law.

Robbin is not currently practicing law.
