 The Concept

The Bankers' Bank Concept

The first bankers' bank was formed in Minnesota in 1976.  Presently, there are 17 bankers' banks in operation.  Bankers' Bank Northeast opened September 8, 1998.  Bankers' banks, as reported by the Bankers' Bank Council, provide services to over 6,000 depository institutions in 50 states.  Bankers' banks attempt to aggregate the processing volumes and activities of clients to achieve economies of scale.  In addition to being cost effective, bankers' banks develop and provide products and services to their clients that may not be readily available or too costly to develop individually.

Bankers' banks are owned by investor financial institutions and may provide services only to financial institutions.  Further, an investor is not permitted to own more than 5% of the voting stock of a bankers' bank and may not invest an amount greater than 10% of its capital.  State-chartered commercial and savings banks, savings and loan associations, national banks and credit unions may invest in a bankers' bank.

Quarterly aggregated financial data compiled by the Bankers' Bank Council highlights the ability of bankers' banks to profitably and effectively deliver products and services.  In the aggregate, bankers' banks provide services to over 58% of the depository institutions in their respective markets.
