Stock exchange is an integral part of a country’s capital market as it aids in capital formation through the sale of securities most notably shares. It also provides the marketability of securities by providing a secondary market for trading. Hence, it’s a place where securities of listed companies can be bought and sold thereby bringing together companies and investors in one place.

Shares are the most commonly traded securities on the stock exchanges. A share represents ownership in the company and hence is referred to as an ‘equity instrument’. The amount of ownership is restricted to the extent of shares purchased. Bonds on the other hand represent the amount of funds ‘lent’ out to the company. Hence, it is referred to as a ‘debt instrument’ and entitles the holder a fixed rate of interest.

Dividends are returns on shareholding. The return is paid by the company out of its profits. This return may be in the form of cash or additional shares referred to as ‘bonus shares’. Dividends are announced by the company usually once or twice a year depending upon companies’ policies.

A primary market is a market where securities that have never been issued before being offered to The public. This initial public offering (IPO), also called the primary issue and is therefore a transaction between the issuing company and the investor. A buyer of the initial issue may consider selling the security to another party. This transaction is done on the secondary market where the outstanding securities are traded amongst investors.

A listed company is one whose securities are listed on an exchange. The share price of a listed company is quoted and traded on a stock exchange. An unlisted company is one whose securities are not listed on an exchange. Its shares are therefore not available for trading to the general public. Private limited companies are examples of unlisted companies.

In order to raise additional funding may a company issue right shares to the existing share – holders. A right issue, therefore, allows shareholders to buy shares of an issue before it is offered to the public usually at a discounted price. The new shares are usually issued in proportion to the existing investors’ holdings.

A Central Depository System (CDS) is an electronic book-entry system for custody and transfer of securities. CDS was introduced to replace the manual system of physical handling and settlement of shares at the stock exchange. The CDS is managed by the Central Depository Company (CDC) which is incorporated under the Central Depositories Act 1997. Investors can open their accounts directly with CDC called Investor Accounts or open sub-accounts with a brokerage firm. With the introduction and implementation of the CDS and automated trading system, trading and settlement of securities have become efficient.
