What is a banker's bank? I came across this term when I was scrolling through my research on banks. I came across this definition, that says that they are banks that service the charter banks that founded them(or so I understood). I didn't know what charter was so I founded this, which says charter is a legal document rather that a type of bank. The central bank(of my country), says it is a banker's bank that is supposed to actually regulate other bank's monetary policies. So, I was getting very confused with my amateur deductions and finally resolved here.

    What's the context? Where did this term come up? – jimsug Aug 4 '16 at 10:16

Sounds like this is referring to a central bank, which is a standard fixture of fiat monetary systems.

The central bank regulates the supply of money, in part by setting the terms under which retail/commercial banks can operate, borrow, and lend.
