Federal Savings and Loan

Definition

Banking institution that enjoyed popularity during the 1980s, but fell out of favor following the Savings and Loan scandal in the early 1990s. This type of bank provided loans at lower rates than other institution because it did not need to pass profits on to third party investors.
