Meet Jacob Going, CFA®

Alpine Bank Wealth Management Investment Officer

Jacob Going joined Alpine Bank as an investment officer in 2022, bringing six years’ financial industry experience — ranging from traditional, comprehensive financial planning to sophisticated hedge fund trading and venture capital.

Prior to joining Alpine Bank Wealth Management, he served as a portfolio manager and financial analyst for a registered investment advisor headquartered in the Vail Valley where he managed roughly $100 million in assets. Jacob graduated from Louisiana State University in 2016 with a bachelor’s in finance. In 2020, he earned the chartered financial analyst (CFA®) designation.

Jacob immediately moved to Vail after college graduation, to pursue his passion for skiing and snowboarding. In summer in his leisure time, you’ll find Jacob on the river, the trail, the singletrack or the golf course. His love of the mountain environment translates to his volunteer work and charitable giving, both of which are inspired by sustainability.

“I try to diversify where I donate time and money, but I regularly support Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science,” says Jacob. “I donate to STEM causes often, choosing to funnel a majority of my donations to this field in the hopes of making our people and our planet a better place.”

Born and raised in Louisiana, Jacob has four younger sisters and two younger brothers. He enjoys spending time outdoors with his wife and their one-year-old golden retriever Gumbeaux. He also keeps himself and his coworkers entertained with the occasional office prank.
