Thrift Bank means a financial organization that focuses on basic banking services. These kinds of banks are usually community-focused institutions, smaller than retail and commercial banks. Thrift Banks lay an emphasis on individuals and small businesses. Their services are built around taking deposits and originating home mortgages.
Thrift banks often have access to low-cost funding from Federal Home Loan Banks, which allows them to offer a competitive rate of interest.
