Together, Let's Give Your Clients More.

Trust is at the heart of any meaningful relationship, and at Lake Ridge Bank, we embrace the hard work it takes to earn yours—and your clients’. And once we have, we’re going to work even harder to keep it, whether it’s providing a spot-on solution to a complex problem or simply taking the time to listen. Because once we’ve formed a true partnership based on trust, that’s when our trustee and fiduciary services deliver the greatest benefit: to your clients: peace of mind knowing their financial life is in order for their lifetime and beyond.

Our Wealth Management Team has a long, successful history of partnering with external money managers. Whether serving as trustee or acting as agent under a durable power of attorney for finances, we can work TOGETHER to serve your clients and secure their future.

Do you have clients who are beneficiaries of a trust? If so, start the conversation. Questions you could ask your clients:

  • “Are you happy with how your trust is managed?”
  • “Does it get the attention it deserves?”
  • “Would you be interested in meeting with a member of the Wealth Management Team at State Bank of Cross Plains to review the trust’s management?”

From Diverse Knowledge to Superb Service, a Team Like No Other.

Your clients need someone who can handle the complications sometimes involved with trust administration. That’s us.
