Market Maker

A market maker is a securities broker which acts as a counterparty to trades by committing to purchase and sell specific securities at the going market rate.

By guaranteeing the purchase and sale of securities to investors, market makers help to maintain the liquidity of securities which they make a market for and facilitate trade on the securities exchanges which they are members of.
