another bank or trust company for the purpose of paying withdrawals in
excess of current receipts, meeting current obligations, or awaiting a
more favourable opportunity for investment. In New York State this fund is limited to 20% of deposits.
Total funds of a bank available at any time for conversion into
earning assets or other investment are not only its deposits but its total
capital funds and any borrowed money as well.
