In this video I cover the different asset classes within the financial markets. These consist of, but are not limited to, equity, fixed income, cash and cash equivalents, real assets (think infrastructure, real estate, etc.), and alternative investments (hedge funds, private equity, venture capital, etc.). I also talk about the benefits of diversification in portfolio management and why investors split their capital across asset classes. If you enjoyed this ‘Two Minute Tuesday’ do consider giving the video a thumbs up and subscribing to the channel so you don’t miss future investment banking, finance, consulting and career related videos that will help you succeed in both life and in work. Thanks for passing by. Enjoy!
