real-time gross settlement system


RTGS. A system that streamlines that settlement of large-value transactions between banks and other financial institutions. Instead of moving physical amounts of cash, the banks transfer funds electronically. When one bank transfers money to another, the funds are immediately credited to the second bank and debited to the first.
