Organizing group looks to form bank in Colorado

A group with ties to EverBank are looking to form a de novo in Colorado.

The group behind Battle Bank in Avon applied with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. on March 11 for deposit insurance. The application wasn’t immediately available.

A public notice filled in connection to the application said Battle Bank would be a national bank regulated by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. 

The notice listed three organizers: Francis Trotter III, Arthur Rule IV and Vincent Amato. 

Trotter, whose LinkedIn profile lists him as the de novo’s president, previously served as chairman of EverBank Global Markets.

Amato’s LinkedIn profile listed him as a co-founder and former head of bank operations, strategy and solutions at EverBank. 

EverBank, which was based in Jacksonville, Fla., was sold to TIAA in 2017.
