Prime Bank

One of the approximately 50 largest banks in the world. Prime banks are well known and trade in extremely large investments. However, the term has a negative connotation because of its association with a prime bank scheme, in which a con man attempts to persuade a person to invest in supposed investment vehicles through a prime bank that does not really exist.
