Glossary Term: RESERVE REQUIREMENTS

Definition(s) for RESERVE REQUIREMENTS:


1. ) The minimumamount of cash and liquid assets as a percentage of demand deposits and timedeposits that member banks of the Federal Reserve are required to maintain.

2. ) Reserves that must be held against customer deposits of banks and other depository institutions. The reserve requirement ratio affects the expansion of deposits that can be supported by each additional dollar of reserves. The Board of Governors sets reserve requirements within limits specified by law for all depository institutions (including commercial banks, savings banks, savings and loan associations, credit unions, some industrial loan banks, and US agencies and branches of foreign banks) that have transaction accounts or nonpersonal time deposits. A lower reserve requirement allows more deposit and loan expansion and a higher reserve ratio permits less expansion.

3. ) Requirements set by the Federal Reserve Board of Governors for the amounts that certain financial institutions must set aside in the form of reserves. Reserve requirements act as a control on the expansion of money and credit and may be raised or lowered within limits specified by law (lowering reserve requirements allows more bank lending and money growth; raising requirements, less lending and money growth).
