The term financial institution the general believe of people that one is referring to a particular place where buyers and sellers meet to transact business with one another. Whereas some people are of the opinion that financial institution needs not to be a physical meeting place but instead a consensus of mind over buying and selling of valuable terms, based on both opinions expressed above, one can deduce that to strike a bargain or a deal, there is the need to bring together a seller and a buyer. In other words, there is the need to bring someone with surplus funds or commodities together with another deficit funds or commodities. As we have commodity market where people exchange their merchandise for money so also we have financial market where people exchange their surplus funds for financial instruments.

Before independence and the establishment of the central bank of Nigeria, financial institution in Nigeria was predominantly dominated by foreigners consequently, there was no organized domestic money market where people with surplus funds could exchange them with needy indigenous investors to facilitates trade and production. The only place for investment of funds was the London market hence those with surplus fund had to repatriate them to London for investment. With this practice, funds needed for economy development in Nigeria were exported abroad. The indigenous entrepreneur had no market to raise funds needed for smooth operation of their business, similarly, the government has no effective machinery to mobilize resources to finance its planned projects especially to develop the infrastructural facilities necessary for economy development. Also, an effective machinery for monetary policy and control was not put in place.
