Bearer Bonds, Securities and Cheques

Bearer bonds and shares have no registry of owners, so physical possession is ownership. Banks should ask questions about the beneficial owners of such entities and share this information with law enforcement.

A bearer cheque is a cheque that can be paid out to the holder, usually without any identification. A non-bearer cheque can be converted into bearer form if the original payee has endorsed it.
