Bearer Shares/Bearer Bonds

Bearer Shares/Bearer Bonds
   Securities which confer ownership with a simple certificate, with no central register of owners. The dividends or interest payments are claimed from a paying agent, by presenting coupons clipped from the ownership certificate. Bearer bonds are as portable and almost as anonymous as cash, making them highly desirable to thieves.
