French term or phrase: Actions ....
Hello All, could somebody please explain the difference between 'actions a dividende prioritaire sans droit de vote' and 'certificat d'investissment' as they are both translated as 'non-voting preference shares' by the Robert & Collins du Management. Merci d'avance.

stock certificate without voting rights
Explanation:
basically, under French law, shares of stock may be divided into voting right shares and investment right shares. so stock certificate or non-voting shares (certificat's investissement)
and non-voting prior-preferred shares. not totally sure about prior for prioritaire. In English, prior means payment before other shareholders. you need to get a book on corporate structure and one in french on the various structures. also try the paris bourse website and links. cheers/
