    Why is subordinated loan stock considered a liability for shareholders? This is mentioned under section 6 of chapter 14 (capital management).

    Equity holders are paid only after / if all other obligations have first been settled.

    Thanks Mugono
    Yes, if you are thinking about the regulatory balance sheet, the main concern is meeting the policyholders' obligations, and subordinated debt ranks below policyholders' obligations.
