Foreign Deposits

AAA

DEFINITION of 'Foreign Deposits'

A deposit made at, or money put in to, domestic banks outside of the United States. These deposits are not subject to deposit insurance premiums (a premium paid to ensure that funds can be retreived if the debtor cannot repay the deposit), or reserve requirements (the amount of funds an institution must hold relative to its deposits).

INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Foreign Deposits'

The leniency awarded to foreign deposits regarding deposit insurance and reserve requirements is in effort to compete with the offshore banking centers.
