    1 : Chapter 2 Stock Markets in India/ Stock Exchanges in India
    2 : In every economic system, some units which may be individual or institutions are surplus-generating, others are deficit-generating. Surplus-generating units are called savers while deficit-generators are called spenders.

The financial assets are also called financial claims or financial securities or paper assets. These financial securities are issued by deficit-generating units in exchange for their savings. It is for this reason that surplus-generating units are called investors while deficit-generating units are called issuers.
