How to distribute bank deposits, folowing the population of the area

I am trying to "spread" the money deposited in a bank branch among the surrounding area. If I use the "density" funtion of Spatial Analyst, the deposits are spread circularly. But I want to spread them following the population in the area (the higher population, the higher the deposits).

Is there a way to do this?

(I am thinking in creating a proximity raster, with a cost distance defined as the inverse of population density. But it looks like a too convoluted way).
