Making the future fair together.
Stocks, notes, bonds, and treasury stocks are tradable financial assets known as securities, and they’re generally issued by businesses in order to raise capital. For most investors, this means buying and selling the stock of publicly traded companies on a stock exchange.
While securities don’t have intrinsic value, they guarantee their owner the right to make claims on the assets and earnings of the business entity that issued them. Some securities also entitle the owner to voting power over major decisions made by the issuers.
But when companies engage in fraudulent or deceitful business practices, investors are often left holding the bag, and it undermines public trust in the market as a fair platform everyday people can participate in.
