Денежно-кредитные институты, собирающие сберегаемые денежные средства и поставляющие их заемщикам. Финансовые посредники в общем виде могут быть разбиты на три основные группы — банковские, страховые и инвестиционные институты. Банковские институты, например в США, состоят из коммерческих банков, ссудо-сберегательных ассоциаций, взаимных сберегательных банков, кредитных союзов. Для банковской группы характерно принятие вкладов населения и организаций.
Страховые институты представлены страховыми компаниями и пенсионными фондами. Страховые институты отличаются тем, что они собирают взносы в виде страховых премий. Инвестиционные институты представлены взаимными фондами и финансовыми компаниями. Инвестиционные институты привлекают сберегаемые денежные средства, выпуская собственные акции и используя полученные фонды для инвестиций в акции и облигации.

Contemporary Financial Intermediation, Second Edition Stuart Greenbaum and Anjan Thakor bring a unique analytical approach to the subject of banks and banking in this completely revised and updated new edition. They expand the scope of the typical bank management course by addressing all types of deposit-type financial institutions and by explaining the why of intermediation rather than simply describing institutions, regulations, and market phenomenon. This analytic approach strikes at the heart of financial intermediation by explaining why financial intermediaries exist and what they do.
