I need an abstraction for the above terms for using in a financial service application.

I am thinking to use "Current Accounts".

Is it appropriate to use this term to cover all of these terms that I mentioned on title?

  • Your clients and employees might balk at being called current accounts. Calling your partner that doesn't sound particularly endearing either. – Lawrence Apr 18 '18 at 14:30
  • I don't want to use stakeholder even though was addressed in some resources. @Lawrence – buenokinder Apr 18 '18 at 14:52
  • If you're not really looking for a hypernym, it depends on the particular abstraction you're looking for. – Lawrence Apr 18 '18 at 16:41


3. a person or people forming one side in an agreement or dispute.

"a contract between two parties"

  • informal

    a person, especially one with specified characteristics.


These are all entities to which you have an agreement, and is normally used in a legal context as a hypernym for a person or collection or persons, such as a corporation. Most of your examples appear to be either persons or corporations.
