3. Cash deposits.  A nondepository trust company may deposit cash, whether constituting principal or income, in any financial institution whether within or without this State, including any affiliated financial institution, if the account is held either in the name of the trust to which the cash belongs or in the name of the nondepository trust company and is composed entirely of cash belonging to trust accounts, the respective contributions of which are reflected in the books and records of the nondepository trust company.
