TIAA Bank is an American diversified financial services organization under the auspices of New York-based TIAA. Based in Jacksonville, Florida, TIAA Bank provides banking, mortgages, and investing services throughout the United States. The institution was formed through the combination of TIAA Direct, TIAA's former banking division, and EverBank. The new name became official on June 4, 2018, following EverBank's acquisition by TIAA in July 2017.[1]

History[edit]

Originally named Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association of America, TIAA was created in 1918 by Andrew Carnegie, a Scottish-American industrialist, business magnate, and philanthropist known for building Carnegie Hall in New York, NY,[2] and for the 2,509 public and university libraries whose construction he funded across the U.S. and beyond.

TIAA reached a deal to buy EverBank for $2.5 billion in cash on August 8, 2016.[3] On June 12, 2017, the company officially became "TIAA FSB Holdings, Inc. formerly known as EverBank Financial Corp". Nearly a year later, TIAA began rebranding all of its banking activities under the TIAA Bank name on June 4, 2018.[1]

Community involvement[edit]

Since 2018, the bank has donated nearly 9 million dollars to over 100 charitable organizations based upon 4 main pillars: education, environment, hunger and community building. TIAA Bank has given support to organizations such as the following:

TIAA Bank Field[edit]

Originally named Jacksonville Municipal Stadium, and later Alltel Stadium, the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars got a new name on the eve of the 2010 training camp, when EverBank Financial Corp and the Jaguars introduced EverBank Field on July 27, 2010. The partnership included a five-year naming rights agreement, which was extended by another 10 years in 2014.

On June 4, 2018, EverBank became TIAA Bank and the stadium was renamed TIAA Bank Field.
