Bank Holding Company (BHC)

Company that owns, or has controlling interest in, one or more banks. A company that owns more than one bank is known as a multibank holding company. The Board of Governors is responsible for regulating and supervising bank holding companies, even if the bank owned by the holding company is under the primary supervision of a different federal agency (the Comptroller of the Currency or the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation).
