A dealer is a financial intermediary that stands ready to buy or sell assets with its clients. A dealer is an individual or firm acting as a principal, rather than as an agent, in the purchase and/or sale of securities.
Dealers trade for their own account and risk. This is in contrast to brokers who trade only on behalf of their clients.
