Nonmember Bank

In the United States, a state-chartered bank that has opted not to join the Federal Reserve System. Such banks are required to place a certain number of their accounts at a Federal Reserve Bank so as to meet reserve requirements. However, nonmember banks allowed access to the Federal Reserve's discount window are not required to purchase stock in the Federal Reserve. In general, nonmember banks are less regulated than member banks. For example, they are allowed to keep at least a portion of their reserves in interest-bearing securities. They are subject only to the laws of the states in which they are chartered.

(123) Since the RFC would borrow in the capital markets to finance its loans to nonmember banks and trusts, Glass suggested that Federal Reserve purchases, advances, and discounts involving RFC debt would give nonmember banks and trusts indirect access to Federal Reserve credit.
