Share Accounts

A share account is an instance of a share product. A share account has a unique account number, a specified share price, external id, minimum number of active days and allows enabling or disabling dividends for inactive clients.

A share account can be created for an active client based on a share product that is active on the submitted date. When a share account is created, it inherits the rules and defaults from the share product. Your financial institution may allow some of the inherited information to be modified for a share account.

Share account purchase can be a cash or any other payment transaction. But redeeming of shares is only possible with linked savings account. So it's mandatory to link savings account.

Tip - You need to have created savings account in order to create a share account. So whenever there is a dividend posting, it will post to the linked savings account.
