I am completely blind regarding this stocks and shares. So here is my situation. My brother is working in US. He is going to start an IT company there. I will be a partner. He said he will write 20% share of the company in my name. Also he asked to me to do a research on the procedures of having an indian shareholder for a US based company. My concern is, how can he write 20% share of the company in my name? To buy a share of a company, it needs to go public. So how will he write those 20% shares at the beginning itself. Please advice.
Thanks in advance
