Difference between Shareholders and Bondholders?

Answer

The difference between a bondholder and a shareholder lies in their type of investment. A bondholder is someone who owns bonds issued by the government or corporation. A shareholder on the other hand could be a person or company that owns a share of stock issued by a company. Being a bondholder is often preferred because in case of liquidation they are paid first before the stockholders.
