1. Banking

An arrangement between two banks whereby in return for the sub-participant bank depositing with the lending bank the principal amount of a loan made by the latter, the lending bank will pass to the sub-participant bank its relevant share of any payments received from the borrower.

As a legal matter sub-participation is solely between the lending and sub-participant banks, giving the latter no contractual link with the borrower.

Also known as a participation.


Similar arrangements between other finance providers.
