Debt is a right to receive a fixed set of future payments. Equity is a right to receive a share in a venture's earnings. Debtholders have no protections, except for those that they contract for. Equityholders of a company are owed fiduciary duties by the management. Debtholders are usually paid before equityholders in any liquidation of the company.
