Intermediation

A situation in which a financial institution stands between counterparties in a transaction. For example, in the sale of a house, a bank usually serves as a financial intermediary by providing a mortgage to the buyer to pay the seller.

Most transactions requiring a loan to one of the parties include intermediation. See also: Murabaha.
