commercial bank

  

Definition

Privately owned financial institution which (1) accepts demand and time deposits, (2) makes loans to individuals and organizations, and (3) provides services such as documentary collections, international banking, trade financing. Since a large proportion of a commercial bank's deposits is payable on demand, it prefers to make short-term loans instead of the long-term ones (which are handled by organizations such development finance companies and home mortgage companies).
