ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT

Hilltop Bank was founded in 1964 and the Trust and Financial Services Department was chartered in 1984. The Bank is 100% locally owned by the True family. Over the past 30 years, our department has grown from one employee to a full staff of 18 and over $1 billion in assets. We attribute our growth over the past several years to our philosophy and commitment to our clients as well as to our community.

We provide investment management services for a variety of clients and account types—endowment funds for non-profit organizations, investment management accounts for individuals and businesses, trusts and estates, ERISA retirement plans, and individual retirement accounts.
