Is the share capital represented by bearer shares?


Question

Is the share capital represented by bearer shares?

Answer

Depending on the jurisdiction you wish to invest in, the shares may be nominative or bearer. Let´s take a look at Belize, where both types of shares are allowed, as an example. Currently Belizean banks do not favor this kind of legal structures because they are considered high risk and if you require banking services you may be denied the opening of the business account having bearer shares. In the not too distant future it is possible that the bearer shares will disappear at all so that the companies that have issued this type of shares wouldn’t be able to carry out commercial activities in the main markets of the United States and the European Union.
