Fractional-reserve banking is a type of banking whereby the bank retains only a fraction of the customer's deposits as reserves. The bank lends out most of the deposited funds, keeping only a fraction (called the reserve ratio) of the quantity of deposits as reserves of cash and coin in the bank's vaults or as deposits at the central bank.
