Finance Glossary

Just call us Bond. Amortized bond.

Over 700 finance terms, Shmooped to perfection.



If you mingle at a party, you’re schmoozing with a bunch of different people. In finance, commingling means schmoozing with a bunch of different accounts, a.k.a. combining different accounts together.

For example, a broker might combine securities owned by the brokerage with ones owned by clients or might combine a whole bunch of individual customer accounts into one fund that works like a mutual fund.
