About Federal Bank:
The history of Federal Bank dates back to the pre-independence era. Though initially it was known as the Travancore Federal Bank, it gradually transformed into a full-fledged bank under the able leadership of its Founder, Mr. K P Hormis. The name Federal Bank Limited was officially announced in the year 1947 with its headquarters nestled on the banks on the river Periyar. Since then there has been no looking back and the bank has become one of the strongest and most stable banks in the country.

We are the fourth largest bank in India in terms of capital base and can easily boast of a Capital Adequacy Ratio of 17.23 %, one of the highest in the industry. This along with the existence in a highly regulated environment has helped the bank to tide over the recession with minimum impact to its financial stability.

In fact we have been expanding organically over the past few months. We believe in extending our reach to our customers by making our services available to all, 24×7. We have Branches and ATMs across India in addition to the Representative Office at Abu Dhabi that serves as a nerve centre for the NRI customers in UAE. We are transforming ourselves, keeping our principles in tact, into an organisation that offers service beyond par. Being in the service industry we are conscious of our surroundings and what happens in the society.
