Junior Security

Junior Security Definition

Junior Security describes a security that takes a lower priority to another (senior) security's claims on the assets and income in the event of the issuer becoming insolvent. Dividend, interest, and principal are paid to holders of senior bonds, debentures or stocks before the holders of the junior securities when bankruptcy occurs. Only after preferred shareholders received their money, remaining assets are divided among common shareholders.
