TIAA Completes Acquisition of EverBank

Significantly expands TIAA’s suite of products and services

Consumer and commercial banking and lending, digital capabilities play key role in financial well-being

June 12, 2017 — NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–TIAA, a leading financial services provider, announced today the successful completion of its acquisition of EverBank Financial Corp (NYSE:EVER) and its wholly owned subsidiary EverBank. The transaction was originally announced August 8, 2016.

The acquisition significantly expands TIAA’s existing retail banking and lending products and complements the company’s full suite of retirement, investment and advisory services.

It also adds a broad range of business banking services that will allow TIAA to continue to meet the evolving needs of its more than 15,000 institutional clients.

“For nearly a century, TIAA has helped to provide financial well-being for millions of customers,” said Roger W. Ferguson, Jr., president and chief executive officer of TIAA. “Our strategic investment in EverBank is squarely in keeping with that mission, and enables us to diversify, innovate and expand our business to meet the financial needs of our customers in a comprehensive way for generations to come.”

Since its founding more than 20 years ago, EverBank has brought an innovative and forward-thinking approach to banking that offers customers superior tools and opportunities to understand, manage and grow their money.

Combined Customers

“Whether saving for the future, buying a home or managing their day-to-day finances, everyone needs powerful and reliable banking and lending services to help them reach their financial goals,” said Kathie Andrade, chief executive officer of TIAA’s Retail Financial Services business and chairman of the board of TIAA, FSB. “With the addition of EverBank, our combined customers will benefit from even more of our innovative offerings, backed by the exceptional client experience they expect from us – and know we will deliver.”

This acquisition also gives TIAA a talented employee base and significant business operations in Jacksonville, Florida, and other key markets across the country. The combined bank will be headquartered in Jacksonville, and the bank expects to maintain a strong presence and active role in the local community. TIAA also plans to continue to expand its digital capabilities for banking customers.

“EverBank was created to be a different type of bank – a nationwide financial services firm dedicated to working closely with our clients to help them pursue their unique long-term financial goals by truly understanding their personal definition of success,” said Blake Wilson, president and chief executive officer of TIAA, FSB. “We know that our approach to banking – our commitment to service, performance and innovation – is a perfect fit with TIAA’s full suite of products and services, and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce our bank to an even broader audience.”
