  • Investment Climate : 

    This generally refers to the prevailing outlook and mood of the investing public and institutions. It depends largely on the current and anticipated economic situation but is also influenced by political and social factors. Example; political instability creates a negative investment climate where investors shy away from investing in the capital market.

  • Hypothecation : 

    This is when a stockbroker accepts an investor’s shares as collateral for a loan to purchase more shares for the investor.

  • Capital Market : 

    Refers to the sources from which long term capital is raised for the setting up of the sustained growth of companies. The stock exchange is a part of the capital market.


  • Partial Delivery : 

    This is when a broker fails to meet his/her part of the contractual obligation to deliver all securities at an agreed upon date. Example; if the investor has placed an order of 1,000 shares, a delivery of 800 shares is a partial delivery.

  • Share Certificate : 

    A share certificate is a document that shows proof of ownership of shares. It contains the face value of the share, the number of shares represented in the certificate, the certificate number and the holder’s name.
