Security Papers or Securities are nothing more than a certificate, constraining a right, a claim or an interest in a company or a corporate entity. Securities are therefore an evidence of a specific right. If you are not in possession of this paper, you can not exercise this right.

Examples of securities are:

  • Shares
  • Certificates, warrants, options, derivatives
  • Funds
  • Stamps
  • Bonds of any kind, share certificates, debentures, treasury bills, debt securities, cash bonds, government bonds, annuity certificates, medium term bonds
  • Cheques
