Marshall & Ilsley Corporation (also known as M&I Bank) was a US bank and diversified financial services corporation headquartered in Milwaukee, Wisconsin that was purchased by Bank of Montreal in 2010.
The bank was founded in 1847 and by 2008 the bank had assets of $63.5 billion and over 250 branches. After the acquisition, Bank of Montreal combined the Marshall & Ilsley Corporation operations into its existing US subsidiary BMO Harris Bank.
Founded in 1847, M&I Marshall & Ilsley Bank was the largest Wisconsin-based bank, with 194 offices throughout the state. In addition, M&I had 45 locations throughout Arizona; 17 offices in Kansas City and nearby communities; 17 offices on Florida’s west coast; 26 offices in metropolitan Minneapolis/St. Paul (Twin Cities), and one in Duluth, Minnesota; one office in Las Vegas, Nevada; 16 offices in the greater St. Louis area; and 32 offices in the greater Indianapolis area.
In December 2006, M&I signed a definitive agreement to acquire United Heritage Bankshares of Florida with 13 locations in the Orlando area.
In 2007, Metavante Corporation, formerly a wholly owned subsidiary known as - Marshall and Ilsley Data Services, was spun off into a separate publicly traded company and began trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
In late summer of 2010, M&I Bank additionally completed the acquisition of Southwest Bank, St Louis.
In mid-August 2009 the bank was named as one of the largest of more than 150 U.S. lenders which owned nonperforming loans that equal 5 percent or more of their holdings. 5 percent is a threshold that former regulators have stated can wipe out a bank’s equity and threaten its survival.
Acquisition and BMO Harris Bank
On December 17, 2010, Bank of Montreal (BMO) agreed to purchase Marshall & Ilsley in an all-stock transaction valued at about $4.1 billion USD. Marshall & Ilsley was combined with BMO's Harris Bank subsidiary based in Chicago, IL, on October 9, 2012, to form BMO Harris Bank.
On April 5, 2011 bank officers from M&I Bank, Harris Bank, and the Bank of Montreal announced the name of the bank after the merger will be "BMO Harris Bank." Both M&I Bank and Harris bank will be affected by the name change. The new logo will be similar to BMO's logo. The difference is the words "Bank of Montreal" will be replaced with "Harris Bank." The name change to "BMO Harris Bank" took place over a span of 18 months, completing on October 9, 2012.
On July 5, 2011, BMO Financial Group acquired Marshall & Ilsley Corporation through its subsidiary BMO Financial Corp. (formerly Harris Financial Corp.). At the time of the acquisition, certain bank mergers also occurred. M&I Marshall & Ilsley Bank, M&I Bank N.A. (successor to M&I Bank FSB), and The Harris Bank N.A. merged into Harris N.A. At the time of these mergers, Harris National Association changed its name to BMO Harris Bank National Association.
