Preference shares, also known as preferred stocks, are stock issued by a company that pays dividends to its shareholders.
Preference shares are typically issued to raise cash for a corporation, which is referred to as preference share capital.
Preferred shareholders are part-owners of a company, but they do not have voting rights, unlike common shares.
Preference shares have a preferential right when it comes to dividend distribution of dividends or during the liquidation of a company.
