Interbank Loan

A loan that one bank makes to another. Interbank loans may be made to ensure that banks meet their capital requirements at the end of each day. Interbank loans involving a central bank may be a way to control the money supply. Interbank loans must be repaid with interest in a stated period of time, often within a day. In such cases, interbank loans are called overnight loans.
