Bank that accepts deposits of, and performs services for, another bank (called a respondent bank); in most cases, the two banks are in different cities.


A correspondent account is an account (often called a nostro or vostro account) established by a domestic banking institution to receive deposits from, make payments on behalf of, or handle other financial transactions for a foreign financial institution. This allows foreign banks to conduct business and provide services to their clients without the expense of a physical presence.


"Correspondent banking is also known as a relationship entered into between a small bank and a big bank in which the big bank provides a number of deposit, lending, and other services."
