What is an Asset Class?
Asset classes can be defined as investment securities that exhibit similar characteristics such as risk, returns and response to market fluctuations. There can be numerous criteria to classify asset classes. You may classify them based on purpose, i.e. whether it is a consumption asset like oil and natural gas or whether it is an investment asset like stocks and bonds. You may also categorise them based on location or the markets like domestic securities, foreign or international investments, or emerging markets and developed markets.
