  • Lesson 1: What are the main asset classes?

    Asset class’ is a term that describes groups of securities that act similarly in the marketplace. There are several different asset classes, but for individual investors, the most important are equities – otherwise known as stocks and shares – and bonds, which are often divided into government bonds and corporate bonds. When you buy equities, you are literally buying part of a business, and becoming a co-owner, or shareholder, of that particular firm. The returns you get come in two forms. Firstly, any increase in the share price, making your investment more valuable; and secondly, dividends, which are your share of the profits the business makes. But if the firm goes bankrupt, as a shareholder, you’re close to the end of the line when it comes to being repaid. When you buy bonds, h...

But when it comes to trading options it's important not only to diversify your positions among different stocks, but to diversify them among uncorrelated assets. An example of uncorrelated asset classes would be social media and oil stocks. When social media stocks go down it should conceivably have very little impact on what oil stocks do in the future. Therefore the positions in both sectors over true diversification. ================== Listen to our #1 rated investing podcast on iTunes: http://optionalpha.com/podcast ================== Download a free copy of the "The Ultimate Options Strategy Guide": http://optionalpha.com/ebook ================== ...

Asset Classes are a building block to a good investment strategy. A proper understanding of the types of assets is important to make wise investment decisions. Watch this video to know how these two are related and the types of financial instruments. What are asset classes? This short video will give you an idea about asset classes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8oCaHULmUQ0 Asset class is a group of investment options that display the same characteristics. In some cases, specific characteristic of two asset classes may overlap. But no asset class can be a perfect substitute for another. No asset class is perfect – each has its own pros and cons. It all hence boils down to your investment objective. For instance, the cash asset class is great for those who want to have easy access to liquid cash quickly. However, it cannot save you from inflation and the returns are lower than the other asset classes. On the other hand, fixed income instruments are like bonds which offers steady growth of principal and the returns over longer period tend to be more than the cash asset class. But on the flip side, some issuers may not give the committed amount of interest or even return the money when needed. Stocks and equities asset classes have the potential to give higher returns, is easy to liquidate and can protect you from inflation. However, one requires expertise to invest in them. You can read more about the types of asset classes and their importance here: https://www.franklintempletonindia.com/investor/distributor-zone/adviser-education/asset-allocation-and-systematic-investing Some important points about asset classes are: • They help in making the right investment choice • Each asset class is unique and cannot be perfectly substituted • No asset class is perfect Some of the key asset classes are cash, bonds, gold, commodities etc. Asset classes are wide and varied. A single one may not meet all your requirements. A combination of various asset class might be the right choice for you.

Asset class’ is a term that describes groups of securities that act similarly in the marketplace. There are several different asset classes, but for individual investors, the most important are equities – otherwise known as stocks and shares – and bonds, which are often divided into government bonds and corporate bonds. When you buy equities, you are literally buying part of a business, and becoming a co-owner, or shareholder, of that particular firm. The returns you get come in two forms. Firstly, any increase in the share price, making your investment more valuable; and secondly, dividends, which are your share of the profits the business makes. But if the firm goes bankrupt, as a shareholder, you’re close to the end of the line when it comes to being repaid. When you buy bonds, however, you’re lending money, either to a government agency, if it’s a government bond; or to a business, in the case of corporate bonds. Your returns come in the form of interest you receive on your loan. If the business or agency defaults on its bond, you’ll be a bit closer to the front of the queue to be paid from any capital remaining. Equities are considered riskier than bonds but, on the other hand, they generally deliver higher returns over time. So, although you should expect share prices to be volatile at times, equities should, in most cases, form the largest part of a long-term investment portfolio, especially for younger investors. However, if you put too much into equities, you run the risk that your portfolio could fall in value more than you feel comfortable with. So it makes sense to dampen the portfolio volatility with bonds. This is why, the older you are, the greater the proportion of bonds in your portfolio should be – because you have less time remaining to make up the potential shortfall from share losses. The third main asset class is cash. People usually invest in cash via savings accounts or so-called money market funds. These are collective investment schemes where your money is invested alongside other people’s money in cash, or cash equivalents such as short-term government loans, known as treasury bills. Cash is considered to be the safest asset class of all, as it’s unlikely, although not impossible, that you will lose any money. The downside to this safety is that over the long term, cash usually delivers smaller returns than bonds – and considerably smaller returns than equities. Cash also carries the risk of having it’s purchasing power eroded by inflation. In reality, therefore, cash is for savers, rather than investors. Finally, there are alternative investments – which include property, commodities, hedge funds and private equity funds. Some people also include art, classic cars and fine wines in this category. They all have their attractions, and disadvantages. You may want to include cash or alternatives, or both, in your portfolio, but the two main asset classes you should focus on are equities and bonds.

In the world of investing there’s never been a moment in time that’s offered more opportunity to investors than right now. If fact there is so much opportunity for investing, it can be overwhelming at times. Don’t worry about it though, at Jazz Wealth we pride ourselves on being able to walk you through it, and if you have more questions... Let’s take the time to explain the different categories of investments and why you might consider adding them to your portfolio. To start, we’re not going to say “categories” anymore. To look cool in front of your friends (and anyone in the financial space) we’re going to call these categories “Asset classes”. … Like that??? Now, each of these asset classes exposes you to different groups of securities. First we have “Equities” or stocks. This represents a partial ownership of a company. When you buy stock you have the right to vote on some of the companies decisions. Like who gets to be on the board of directors, things like that. You also have the right to receive dividends if the company pays them. This is just a payment given by the company that represents a portion of their earnings. As a shareholder you’re entitled to these dividends, and they do add up over time. Most people don’t choose Equities for the dividend though. They invest for the overall appreciation of the stock’s value, also known as capital appreciation. They hope to buy low and sell high. The next asset class is commodities. One of the main reasons a portfolio manager would add commodities to a portfolio is correlation, or the lack there of. See, usually commodities move in the opposite direction of equities, at least to some degree. Also fixed income tends to act the same, but we’ll get to that in a second. The challenge used to be that couldn’t invest in a commodity like oil and expect to store barrels of oil all over the place, I mean jeez my wife hates it when I leave a cup on the table, could you imagine barrels of oil? But with futures contracts and now ETF’s, investing in commodities has become as simple as clicking a button. Moving on - Fixed income is a very popular asset class as it is seen as less risky than equities. Fixed income is a way to invest in companies that are looking to raise money. They raise money by issuing bonds which you would purchase. This is like making a loan to a company. In exchange for this loan the company will make regular, fixed payments to you with interest. That’s why they call it “Fixed Income”. It is generally believed that fixed income is less risky because if you agree to loan a company money, they promise to pay it back, whereas stocks do not make such a promise. Next we have Currencies. In this asset class investors are simply making a bet as to the direction of a particular currency. Now a days you can use an ETF and bet on the direction of all the major currencies, along with some of the emerging market currencies. Lastly we have Alternatives. Now these get a little tricky, and are usually suggested to be left to the pro’s.

http://optionalpha.com - It's no secret that diversification is an important part of being successful trading in the stock market. But when it comes to trading options it's important not only to diversify your positions among different stocks, but to diversify them among uncorrelated assets. An example of uncorrelated asset classes would be social media and oil stocks. When social media stocks go down it should conceivably have very little impact on what oil stocks do in the future. Therefore the positions in both sectors over true diversification. ================== Listen to our #1 rated investing podcast on iTunes: http://optionalpha.com/podcast ================== Download a free copy of the "The Ultimate Options Strategy Guide": http://optionalpha.com/ebook ================== Still working a day job?

Omega is MoneyWorks4me’s multi-asset portfolio advisory engine. Omega starts with a core equity-debt allocation based on your risk-profile. Using MoneyWorks4me’s market-level assessment, Omega makes smart asset allocation among Direct stocks, Mutual Funds, Index Funds & Debt Funds. When the market moves into higher levels, Omega decreases the allocation to equity, thereby reducing the risk of draw-downs due to market-correction. Similarly, she increases allocation to equity when the market becomes attractive, to make the best out of the available opportunities. Thus, Omega compares risk-adjusted returns across assets and recommends the best at every stage!
