The history of the banking system in the world goes around the 14th century. It hears from the rich families in the ancient Europe and Italy. Banks are one of the most regulated institutions in any country as they have a direct influence on the economy of the particular country. A bank in general terms is a financial institution which accepts deposits from the people and channels them back to the individuals or the organizations in lending activities. The lending might happen directly or through the capital market. Many banks keep a smaller portion of its deposits as a reserve and lend out the balance to make profit.
In addition, the banks act as the trustworthy agent between two individuals or organizations regardless wherever they physically locate. Hence, the banks have become the back bone of every business. A powerful banking system is one of the key components of the development of any country.
