How can I use apostrophe for plural nouns (especially when using US English)

  1. Shareholder's Equity
  2. Shareholders' Equity

Which one is correct ? 1 or 2 ?

Note: I found this post is very helpful.


If the word is indeed plural then the apostrophe comes after the 's', ie. option (2) is correct.

If you were talking abut a single shareholder then you would use option (1).
