Corporate treasury organisation.
In-house bank is a structural corporate treasury role where the central treasury acts as an internal banking facility for the group, all the subsidiaries dealing with the in-house bank.
This is a highly centralised arrangement, compared with advisory or agency treasury structures.
- Centralised treasury function
- "In simple terms, an in-house bank is a centralised treasury function that acts as a bank for an organisation’s subsidiaries. It facilitates various financial services, such as settlements, funding, intercompany lending, liquidity management and FX management and, in doing so, unlocks a host of benefits for the user."

It is sometimes written 'in house' bank without the hyphen.
