Demutualization is a process by which a mutual company owned by its users/members converts into a company owned by shareholders. In a mutual exchange, the three functions of ownership, management, and trading are concentrated in a single group. Here, the broker members of the exchange are both the owners and the traders on the exchange and they further manage the exchange as well. Demutualization leads to the segregation of management and the trading rights in an exchange.
