From Jitney to Junior Debt

Jitney:

The execution and clearing of orders by one member of a stock exchange for the account of another member. For example, investment dealer A is a small firm whose volume of business is not sufficient to maintain a trader on the exchange. Instead it gives its orders to investment dealer B for execution and pays a reduced percentage of the normal commission.

Junior Bond Issue:

A corporate bond issue, the collateral for which has been pledged as security for other more senior debt issues, and therefore ranks behind these prior claims.

Junior Debt:

One or more junior bond issues.
