Agreement Corporation

A corporation that has received a charter from a state to engage in international banking. Under the Agreement Corporation Act, agreement corporations are allowed to receive funds from national corporations and use them to engage in international banking. They are called "agreement" corporations because they agree to abide by the restrictions of the Agreement Corporation Act and the Edge Act, though many of those restrictions have since been relaxed.
