Disintermediation

Business / Real Estate / Disintermediation: The process of individuals investing their funds directly instead of placing their savings with banks, savings and loan associations and similar institutions for investment by such institutions. This bypassing of financial institutions occurs when proportionately higher yields are available on secure investments (such as high-grade corporate bonds, money market funds and government securities) than can be obtained on savings deposits.
