Ordinary shares

Authorised shares issued by a limited company representing the ownership of that company. Shareholders have the right to vote on matters such as corporate policy and the composition of members of the board of directors and usually have an entitlement to any dividends declared. Once issued shares can be traded either privately or publicly, if the company is listed on a recognised stock exchange. Ordinary shares are not secured on the company’s assets.
