  • Joint Bond : 

    This is a bond guaranteed by two or more guarantors, one of them being the issuer. The assets of all the guarantors can be called upon to pay the bond holders in the event that a default occurs. This commonly happens when a parent company is required to guarantee the bonds of a subsidiary company.

  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) : 

    Corporate social responsibility is a company’s commitment to behave ethically and contribute to economic development while improving the quality of life of its workforce and their families as well as the environment and local community at large.

  • Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP) : 

    It is a program that facilitates the acquisition and distribution of a company’s shares to its employees. The employees remain focused on company performance and share price appreciation. These plans are believed to encourage employees to do what’s best for shareholders since they are themselves shareholders.

  • Story Stock : 

    This is a stock whose price is a reflection of some important company news rather than its assets or earnings. Example; the price of shares in an agricultural company may increase after press coverage of an expected bumper harvest.

  • Authorized Shares (Stock) : 

    This is the total number of shares that a company is permitted to issue according to its memorandum and articles of association. This number can only be increased if a resolution is passed to that effect by the majority of the shareholders and an application made to the registrar of companies.
