What is Disposition?

Disposition refers to disposing of an asset through sale, assignment, or other transfer method. 

How Does Disposition Work?

When an investor sells stock or bonds in a particular company, the sale is referred to as a disposition of the stock or bonds.  Insider trades are reported by a company as the disposition of shares to board members and executives. When a bank reviews its loans and decides to sell the collateral that has been taken in a foreclosure, it is referred to as a disposition of the loan assets.  

Why Does Disposition Matter?

Disposition indicates a transfer of ownership of the asset. The asset is sold or relinquished. Disposition can also describe an asset held as collateral on a loan.
