About BMO Financial Group

On July 5, 2011, BMO announced that it has completed the acquisition of Milwaukee-based Marshall & Ilsley Corporation (M&I). M&I Bank is combining with Harris Bank to form BMO Harris Bank N.A., part of BMO Financial Group. Customers will begin to see the new BMO Harris Bank name as the systems integration is completed over the next eighteen months. Until the integration is completed, BMO Harris Bank N.A. will operate former M&I bank branches under the M&I name.
We help our customers make money make sense by delivering the broadest range of financial services through a single point of contact. Our financial service professionals provide access to any services our customers require across the entire enterprise.
