Investing 101: Understanding Asset Classes (Stocks & Bonds)

Table of Contents

Video Transcript

What exactly are asset classes?
Well, think of them as different categories of investments with distinct market characteristics and behaviours.

First up, we have stocks.
These represent ownership in a company.
Stocks can offer great growth potential but can also be volatile.

Next, we’ve got bonds.
These are like loans you provide to governments or corporations.
You receive regular interest payments and get your initial investment back at maturity.
Bonds are generally considered less risky than stocks but may offer lower returns.

Now, let’s talk about real estate.
Investing in real estate means owning a property.
Real estate can provide both steady income and potential capital appreciation, making it a popular choice for long-term investors.

And now we have the Commodities which are raw materials like gold, oil, or agricultural products.
They can act as a hedge against inflation and market volatility.

Lastly, let’s explore the world of cryptocurrencies.
Digital currencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum have gained immense popularity.
They offer the potential for high returns but also come with high volatility.

Which one do you prefer?
