Explanation:
You can find definitions of 'preference share' and 'registered share' at useful financial glossary listed below.

In the case of 'financial account' and 'income account', there are presumably separate accounts in the depository for accounting reasons.

As for a online glossaries - check out Frank Dietz's website, he has a slew of glossaries listed.
www.jump.net/~fdietz/glossary.htm#E-G/E-E, Monolingual German or Multilingual
He has a link to one financial glossary that seems quite useful and comprehensive (it's a Langenscheidt), but it is extremely cumbersome to use.
