In case of hypothecation, possession of goods is not given to the bank. The goods remain at the disposal and in the god owns of the borrower. The bank is given access to goods whenever it so desires. The borrower furnishes periodical return of stock with him to the bank. The bank grants such an advance only to a person in whose integrity it has full confidence.
