Securities Subsidiary

A brokerage or other financial services company owned by a bank. A securities subsidiary deals in commercial paper, mortgage-backed securities and often stocks and bonds as well. Securities subsidiaries have become more popular in the United States since banks were deregulated in the 1980s and 1990s.
