2 “The role of financial intermediation is so crucial in every economy. It affects the rate of investment, the Gross National Product, the level employment, level of income and also further savings. As a result of the crucial position of financial intermediaries, the monetary policies of the government are usually implemented by them.” Financial intermediaries are thought of as a sort of middleman between investors and firms. They are a medium of exchange. The functions of financial intermediaries are portfolio management, mobilization of savings, risk diversification, granting of loans and advances, transmutation, payments mechanism, and security trading. Registered stock brokers are the only people allowed to trade on the floors of the major stock exchanges, so the main function of the broker is to allow the investors access to the stock market.
