Jesus was the perfect mediator as he possessed the nature and attributes of God (He was the Son of God and God Himself) and He (Jesus) was fully a Human Being. Jesus was the God/Man and so was the perfect Mediator. He mediates peace between God and any man who comes to God through Jesus Christ. (MORE)
Computer networks vary in scale from small work groups, local area networks (LANs) to some of the largest networks like the Internet. They are all created essentially from connections between computers. The intermediary devices make the data transfer and regulation of these networks possible. They a…re designed to serve many functions like making data flow control decisions, data encryption, data modulation and demodulation, provide network security and most importantly, provide point to point connectivity. Here are some of the prime examples of intermediary devices that make this possible. I assume that you are familiar with the OSI (Open System Interconnection) model which describe the hierarchies in a computer networking system. In case you are not familiar with it, refer to the article 'OSI model explained'. Switches Network switches or packet switches are devices that connect the various segments of a network, and their main function is switching packets of data. Also called as a network bridge, they switch processes and rout data at the level of the data link layer, which is second of the OSI model layers (concerned with physical addressing of data). A switch may also operate at the level of other OSI layers like the physical, network or transport layer. Multilayer switches act at different OSI layers simultaneously. Network switches play a vital role in the functioning of local area networks. Routers As its name suggests, a router is an intermediary device that regulates and routs data traffic between computer networks. It forwards data to various network destinations and controls flow of data between two or more logical subnets, which do not have the same network address in a large network. It selects the optimum path for data transfer between two points in a network. Routers are one of the most vital intermediary devices that make data transmission possible. Modem A modem (modulator - demodulator) is an intermediary device that converts analog signals transferred over networks into digital signals and digital signals back to analog. They enable the transmission of digital data over analog mediums like telephone lines and optic fiber cables. Wireless Access Points A wireless access point (WAP) is an intermediary device in a network that connects various types of wireless communication devices to connect with wireless networks. The connectivity is made possible through 'Bluetooth' and 'Wifi technologies'. It acts as an intermediary between wireless devices and wired devices that are part of a network. Hub Working at the physical layer of the OSI model, a hub is basically a connector between ethernet segments which also control the bandwidth sharing among connected computer terminals. Repeater Repeaters are network devices that carry out the task of maintaining signal strength over its transmission through a network. They regenerate data signals and amplify them for further transmission. Firewall A firewall is one of the most important intermediary devices in any network. A firewall is any hardware appliance or software designed to filter network traffic that passes through it according to certain criteria and trust levels set by the network administrator. These were some of the most common intermediary devices that are part of every computer network at any scale. Some other examples of intermediary network devices are proxy servers, gateways and digital media receivers. Without them, the working of a computer network would be next to impossible! (MORE)
Banking firm can be assimilated as a centralization of supply and demand liquidity from different economic agents, which represents a source of economies of scale to avoid duplication of costs.

What is the relationship between securitizatioln and the role of financial intermediaries inthe economy. What happen to financial intermediaries as securitization progresses?
- Securitization changes the basic role of financial intermediaries. Traditionally, financial intermediaries have pooled funds from investors loaned to firms in their place.. - Securitization has enabled firms to offer these functions in the form of a security, in which case, the focus shifts to …the more essential function i.e. distributing a financial product. (For example, in the above case, the bank, being the earlier intermediary, was eliminated, and instead the services of an investment banker were sought to distribute a debenture issue.). - Securitization seeks to eliminate fund based financial intermediaries for fee based distributors. (In the above example, the bank was a fund based intermediary, a reservoir of funds, whereas the investment banker was a fee based intermediary, a catalyst, a pipeline of funds. Hence, with the increasing trend towards securitization, the role of fee based financial services has been brought into the focus.). - In case of a direct loan, the lending bank was performing several intermediation functions as noted above. It was distributor, in the sense that it raised its own finances from a large number of small investors. It was appraising and assessing the credit risks in extending the corporate loan, and having extended it, it was managing the same.. - Securitization splits each of these intermediary functions apart, each to be performed by separate specialized agencies. The distribution function will be performed by the investment bank, appraisal function by a credit rating agency, and management function, possibly by a mutual fund which manages the portfolio of security investments by the investors. Hence, securitization replaces fund based services with several fee based services..

Give an example of three financial intermediaries and explain how they act as a bridge between small investors and large capital markets or corporations?

financial intermediary is one of the participants in the financial market. the other two are fund's providers and fund's users. financial intermediaries are important because they are institution that bring lenders and borrower together. savers with excess funds will deposits funds with financial… intermediaries who will then lend them to fund deficit units. examples include commercial banks, insurance companies, and investment companies. thus, financial intermediaries can be regarded both as a provider and as a user of funds. apart from bringing fund-deficit and fund-surplus together, another function provided by financial intermediaries is investment banking. frequently, companies may need to obtain large amounts of funds direct from the public. this involve issues of securities, either in the form of debt or equity. the service of the merchant banker is required for this purpose. the banker is directly involved in floating new securities to the public besides providing advice and underwriting services. when a banker underwrites an issues, it means that any shares not bought by investors will be bought by the banker. the underwriting function ensures that the corporation receives the total amount of funds it want to raise.

A wholesale intermediary works with the whole seller and the buyer.They may negotiate contracts for prices, but they are not an agentfor either party.
Channels Funds: The financial intermediary provides a place where surplus units can deposit their excess funds with confidence. The financial intermediaries have expert knowledge that ensures that transaction costs of such trade are minimised. Because the financial intermediaries receive deposits … from a large customer base they can aggregate these savings and make them available to suitable deficit units as required. Maturity transformation: Many deficit units want to borrow for a long period of time whereas many surplus units don't want to tie up their money for such a long period of time. Financial intermediaries accept deposits daily so if someone wants to borrow for 10 years they can do so, whereas the surplus units don't have to deposit for the 10 years. Because of the daily business of accepting funds, there is a rolling over of new deposits so that there are sufficient funds to enable surplus units to withdraw their funds as they wish. Maturity transformation is the ability to turn short-term deposits into longer term loans. Risk Transformation: Where a surplus unit may be unwilling to lend their money for fear of default, a financial intermediary can spread such risk by virtue of the diversity of the spectrum of its activities. By having a large number of borrowers, all screened, any defaults which may occur can be absorbed by the return on all the successful loans (MORE)
