Facilitation

The process of providing a market for a security. Normally, this refers to bids and offers made for large blocks of securities, such as those traded by institutions. Listed options may be used to offset part of the risk assumed by the trader who is facilitating the large block order. See also: Hedge ratio.

Facilitation

The act of providing or preserving the liquidity of a market. For example, market makers facilitate markets when they trade on their own accounts to try to preserve an equilibrium of supply and demand.
