Certificate

A physical document that declares a fact and that may be used to prove said fact. One of the most common types of certificates is a stock certificate, which gives the person or company listed a portion of ownership in a publicly-traded company. Certificates often contain a great deal of information, such as what the certificate entails, whether that be ownership, a right attached to the ownership (such as a warrant), or something else entirely. Certificates of ownership also state the name of the owner; for example, a deed to a house contains the name of the owner(s). Certificates are vitally important, as one may use them in court to prove a fact alleged.

a document signifying ownership of a FINANCIAL SECURITY (STOCK, SHARE etc.). In the UK such certificates are issued in the name of the person or company recorded in the company's register of SHAREHOLDERS as the owner of these shares, new certificates being issued to buyers when shares are sold.
