Registered Securities

In contrast to a bearer security, a record of ownership (in other words, a register) is maintained in relation to registered securities.  The register is the record of ownership and it is this that must be amended if ownership of the security is to be transferred to another party.  This safeguard makes registered securities much less susceptible to theft and financial fraud when compared to bearer securities.  Most securities issued today are in registered form.
