The objective of this document is to provide basic information regarding the various types of investment instruments that can be used to structure transactions. The goal is to create awareness of the standard securities, alternative investment structures, and the associated legal terms that can be used to better position XYZ to maximize returns as equity owners of a venture.
1 Equity (Stock)
Equity is ownership. Equity is what companies sell to investors to fund the company and what entrepreneurs retain to realize the value of what they have created. Equity represents the value of a company as a goingconcern. It is the most permanent form of investment in a company. Equity does not require repayment and sodoes not deplete company cash, as debt repayments do. Usually, equity takes the form of stock ownership (of which there are many variations) and carries with it certainrights the owner can exercise that are distinctive from rights secured by a note, debenture, or other debt instrument.
A derivative is a financial product that is based upon (or "derived" from) another product. Derivatives modifyrisk exposure by directly offset or hedging a position or by indirectly offsetting a position (i.e using a cross-hedge). They are also used for investment or speculative purposes.
3 Debt (?Bonds?)
Debt is defined as a sum owed by one party to another. The three largest issuers of debt are domestic corporations, municipal governments and the federal government. Each class features additional and significant differences. Each firm may sell different kinds of bonds: Some debt may be publicly placed, whereas other bonds might be privately placed ("private placement"). Some may be collateralized or secured by specific assets of a company, whereas other bonds might be unsecured. Depending on their objectives, borrowers differ in their preferences for raising debt capital. As a result, the distinctions among various types of issuers correspond closely to differences among bonds in yield, denomination, safety of principal, maturity, tax status, and other provisions such as call and put provisions and sinking fund.

"I like your product. I'm frequently designing PowerPoint presentations for my company and your product has given me so many great ideas on the use of charts, layouts, tools, and frameworks. I really think the templates are a valuable asset to the job."
– Roberto Fuentes Martinez, Senior Executive Director at Technology Transformation Advisory
"As a niche strategic consulting firm, Flevy and FlevyPro frameworks and documents are an on-going reference to help us structure our findings and recommendations to our clients as well as improve their clarity, strength, and visual power. For us, it is an invaluable resource to increase our impact and value."
– David Coloma, Consulting Area Manager at Cynertia Consulting
"I have used Flevy services for a number of years and have never, ever been disappointed. As a matter of fact, David and his team continue, time after time, to impress me with their willingness to assist and in the real sense of the word. I have concluded in fact that it is not at all just a repository of documents/resources but, in the way that David and his team manage the firm, it is like dealing with consultants always ready to assist, advise and direct you to what you really need, and they always get it right.
I am an international hospitality accomplished senior executive who has worked and lived during the past 35 years in 23 countries in 5 continents and I can humbly say that I know what customer service is, trust me.
Aside from the great and professional service that Flevy's team provide, their wide variety of material is of utmost great quality, professionally put together and most current.
Well done Flevy, keep up the great work and I look forward to continue working with you in the future and to recommend you to a variety of colleagues around the world."
– Roberto Pelliccia, Senior Executive in International Hospitality
"The wide selection of frameworks is very useful to me as an independent consultant. In fact, it rivals what I had at my disposal at Big 4 Consulting firms in terms of efficacy and organization."
– Julia T., Consulting Firm Owner (Former Manager at Deloitte and Capgemini)
"I have found Flevy to be an amazing resource and library of useful presentations for lean sigma, change management and so many other topics. This has reduced the time I need to spend on preparing for my performance consultation. The library is easily accessible and updates are regularly provided. A wealth of great information."
– Cynthia Howard RN, PhD, Executive Coach at Ei Leadership
"As a small business owner, the resource material available from FlevyPro has proven to be invaluable. The ability to search for material on demand based our project events and client requirements was great for me and proved very beneficial to my clients. Importantly, being able to easily edit and tailor the material for specific purposes helped us to make presentations, knowledge sharing, and toolkit development, which formed part of the overall program collateral. While FlevyPro contains resource material that any consultancy, project or delivery firm must have, it is an essential part of a small firm or independent consultant's toolbox."
– Michael Duff, Managing Director at Change Strategy (UK)
"FlevyPro has been a brilliant resource for me, as an independent growth consultant, to access a vast knowledge bank of presentations to support my work with clients. In terms of RoI, the value I received from the very first presentation I downloaded paid for my subscription many times over! The quality of the decks available allows me to punch way above my weight – it's like having the resources of a Big 4 consultancy at your fingertips at a microscopic fraction of the overhead."
– Roderick Cameron, Founding Partner at SGFE Ltd

– Dean Carlton, Chief Transformation Officer, Global Village Transformation Pty Ltd.
