Registered Security

A security with the owner's name printed on the certificate or, in the case of an electronic registration, where the owner's name is listed in a database. Registered securities contrast with bearer forms, which the person physically holding them is presumed to hold. Virtually all securities currently traded are registered securities; this has become truer as registration has become computerized.
