What is the difference between loan against shares and loan against securities?

A "loan against shares" and "loan against securities" are terms that are often used interchangeably, but there's a subtle difference. A "loan against shares" typically refers to borrowing money with a specific stock portfolio as collateral. On the other hand, "loan against securities" is a broader term encompassing a wider range of financial instruments, including bonds, mutual funds, and other securities. So, while both involve using securities as collateral for a loan, the former is more specific to shares or stocks, while the latter can involve various types of securities.
