DEPOSIT: A bank account maintained by a bank on behalf of a customer. In a fractional-reserve banking system, one of the primary functions of a bank is to keep customer deposits safe. Banks offer a wide range of deposits, including checkable (or transactions) deposits, savings deposits, certificates of deposit, and money market accounts. Such deposits represent a sizable portion of the M1 money supply and as well as broader monetary aggregates -- M2 and M3. They also constitute the bulk of the liabilities of a typically bank.
