    A bank is a building. A bank is also the institution, the company. Bank is also a verb.

    The bank on the corner of Elm and Park street is closing.
    Grammar Bank is the second largest in the U.S.
    I bank with Grammar Bank.

    Banking is the "noun-form" of the verb "to bank" just like "swimming" is like a noun and is from ther verb "to swim," etc.
    Banking with Grammar Bank is convenient.
    I do my banking with Grammar Bank.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    "Banking" can also refer to the industry or the activity.
