Merchants Bank of Indiana began its Warehouse Lending Division in 2009 to serve a much needed void in the mortgage industry. Since that time the Warehouse Lending Division has leveraged its years of mortgage experience to become one of the top Warehouse Lenders in the country and continues to exceed year over year volumes with $46.2 billion funded in 2019.
