Issuer is a Tradable that represents the company or the sovereign institution that borrows funds by selling securities such as notes or stocks.
Apart from the actual existing issuers in the real economy, like Google or Microsoft, Issuer also allows the creation and usage of so called "custom issuers" with user-defined names.
Note you may create a
trivial object of type Issuer directly through a text entry that has the form: "%identifier", where identifier follows these rules:
Format 1: "ticker|country|I", for example "MSFT|US|I"
Format 2: "GOVERNMENT|country", for example "GOVERNMENT|US"
