Negotiable Instrument

a financial instrument stating that the holder thereof is entitled to receive (or direct) payment of a specified amount of money on a specified date, or on demand. A party obtains rights as the entitlement holder under a Negotiable Instrument by having possession of it. Negotiable Instruments can be transferred without the knowledge or permission of the Issuer thereof, usually by physical delivery or endorsement.
