Banks are the foundation of any country’s economy. Banks provide a variety of financial services in the economy on behalf of the country, enterprise entities, corporations, organisations, and people. Accepting deposits, making loans, wealth management, currency exchange, money transfers, safe deposit boxes, and other services are among the many that banks provide. Banks are classified into three types: investment banks, retail banks, and commercial banks.
