What is a Trading Bank?
Trading banks are companies that provide underwriting, loan services, financial consulting, and fundraising services for large companies and individuals with high net worth. Unlike retail or commercial banks, commercial banks do not provide services to the general public. They do not provide regular banking services such as checking accounts and do not take deposits.
Trading banks usually carry out financing and international guarantees including real estate , trade finance, foreign investment, and other international transactions. They may be involved in issuing letters of credit and in transferring funds. They can also consult about trade and trade technology.
