Asset class

Asset class

We told you about asset allocation, so you know assets are types of investments - the chunks that make up your portfolio. The industry bods like to give it a bit more class... by adding the word class.

The main asset classes are equities (stocks), fixed income (bonds) and cash or equivalents (assets that behave like cash).

Less mainstream asset classes are commercial property (your money is invested in shops, offices and factories) and commodities (raw materials that range from oil to copper).
