Abstract: Let V denote an infinite dimensional Banach space over the complex field and let $ G[V]$ denote the subset of bounded operators on V with the property that the null space has a closed complement and the range is closed, where the null space and range are proper subspaces of V. Necessary and sufficient conditions for $ T \in G[V]$ to be in the boundary, $ \mathcal{B}$, of the maximal group, $ \mathcal{M}$, of invertible operators are determined. As a result, $ \mathcal{B} \cap G[V]$ is the set of products of operators in $ \mathcal{M}$ and operators in $ \mathcal{P}$, where $ \mathcal{P}$ is the set of projections other than the identity operator and null operator.
