Multibank Holding Company

A company that is the majority shareholder in at least two banks. A multibank holding company controls the operations of the banks it owns. Multibank holding companies have access to liquidity from regulators through the loans made to the banks themselves. In the United States, all bank holding companies must register with the Federal Reserve and are subject to its regulation, though they may also be responsible to other regulators as well.
