Firewall

The legal barrier between banking and broker/dealer operations within a financial institution created to prevent the exchange of inside information.

Chinese Wall

Informal; the imposed lack of communication between the investment banking and brokerage services of a financial institution.

The Chinese wall protects both the financial institution at large and the individual investment bankers and brokers.
