English term or phrase: compensating balances (in this context)
Any help with the following sentence would be greatly appreciated: "Corporate service charges grew 11 percent due to higher fees paid in lieu of compensating balances as a result of a lower rate environment."
The "corporate service charges" are the fees charged by a bank to its corporate customers. Many thanks!
