tiger

Here is my best explanation:

'fierce person' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'finally investing in bank' is the wordplay.
'finally' says to take the final letters.
'in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'bank' becomes 'tier' (I've seen this before).
The last letter of 'investing' is 'g'.
'g' put within 'tier' is 'TIGER'.
