ISIN

International Securities Identification Number (ISIN).  A unique code which identifies a particular share.

When you use a stock broker to buy shares, you can often find the share you want by its name.  However, some companies have similar sounding names, and some companies issue more than one share.  You can use the ISIN code to make sure you’ve got the right share.
