Trust and Estate Planning Services
The Bank of Commerce Trust Department
is one of the few remaining full service trust departments in the area. Our experienced Trust Officers can help you with a full array of products and services and can administer trusts, act as executor of estates and act as agent for your personal investments.
Make sure your loved ones receive the benefits of your estate. Don't let the government dictate how your estate will be handled by leaving your estate to chance. No matter how big or small, The Bank of Commerce can help. Our Trust Department can administer trusts that benefit family members or different charities or they can assist you in establishing a trust which can help you now and your loved ones later. Your attorney can put your will into proper legal form, but our Trust Officers can give you helpful pointers on establishing a will. You can even appoint the Bank as personal representative of your estate, assuring an experienced, unbiased handling of your affairs. Contact The Bank of Commerce Trust Department for a no-obligation consultation.
