Comerica specializes in providing comprehensive banking services including treasury management, deposit and investment products and loan products specifically designed for high growth companies. Now in its second decade, the Technology and Life Sciences (TLS) Division at Comerica Bank understands the challenges these companies face and we have the expertise to provide the financial products and services to meet them.

A Depth of Resources

Through our TLS Division and Canadian branch, we are able to serve the technology and life sciences companies of Canada with virtually the same complement of resources we provide in the United States.  And, thanks to our integrated commercial services throughout North America, cross-border issues like loans and foreign exchange are non-issues with Comerica. Our extensive links between customers in Canada and the U.S. offer you abundant opportunities to capitalize on our operating platforms in both countries.

At Comerica, we are actively seeking opportunities to structure deals with companies in Canada and the U.S. that are looking to take the next step and require only the capital to make it happen. Our products and services are tailored to meet the needs of start-up and emerging technology and life sciences companies. After listening carefully to your needs, Comerica will recommend those solutions that will best serve your business, both day-to-day and into the future.

Our commitment to the technology and life sciences sector is backed by the considerable resources of America’s leading bank for business*.
