The Shippers' and Merchants' Treasury was a powerful bank based in Xenos, the capital of the Republic of Cinnabar.

Its president and majority shareholder was former Speaker of the Cinnabar Senate Corder Leary of the Learys of Bantry. His daughter and heir, Deirdre, handled many of the bank's day-to-day operations.

The bank rented the second floor of Chatsworth Minor, the townhouse the Leary's helped Adele Mundy get back after she came out of exile. This way, they paid for the renovation and staffing of the building, which Mundy could not afford. (RCN2)
