Tamilnad Mercantile Bank (TMB) was established in Tuticorin, Tamilnadu in the year 1921 and was initially set up to serve the business needs of the Nadar community. Expansion outside the state only began in the 70s and its client base remains concentrated in southern India. Traditionally a business focused lender, the bank is now working to expand its retail exposure.

The bank has grown consistently over time, with healthy profits and relatively low NPAs. While it was initially set to go IPO in 2017, the bank has deferred this decision for the time being. As a viable business with strong potential for growth, TMB makes for a suitable long term investment.
