Business Strategy and Outlook| Eric Compton |
M&T Bank is a midsize regional bank with operations throughout the Northeastern United States. The bank's main stronghold is its commercial real estate operations, with much of the rest of its business comprising other commercial-focused (as opposed to retail-focused) operations, although the bank does have retail operations. M&T has a history of good management, good underwriting, and deep on-the-ground relationships. The bank is a solid regional operator.
