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.

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, 24x7. 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.
