Reference information:
la definizione in inglese del termine è money center bank

A large bank in a major financial center which borrows from and lends to governments, corporations, and other banks, rather than consumers.


In the stock market, bank analysts usually categorize the money center banks as separate from regional banks—those that focus on one area of the country.

agree  Chiara Santoriello: stavo per scriverlo io. Sono istituzioni tipicamente americane. Lascerei il termine in inglese.

  -> grazie Chiara. Si specialmente nel sistema americano alcune istituzioni non hanno un traducente in italiano.
agree  Stefano Spadea: sarei anche io per lasciarlo così, in quanto le due proposte non mi convincono ed un traducente credo sia difficile trovarlo. Citigroup ad esempioè sia banca d'investimento che banca commerciale.
