Different Asset Classes
  • 1. Traditional

    • Direct Equity

      Direct Equity: Direct Equity investment refers to the buying and holding of shares of a company listed on a stock market, by individuals in anticipation of receiving income through dividends and capital gains through the rise in the value of shares. The Investors in stocks purchase them with the clear intention of holding them for a certain period of time, which can be from several months to years.

    • Mutual Funds

      Mutual Funds: A Mutual Fund is a professionally managed pool of funds collected from a group of investors with similar investment objectives. A mutual fund represents a portfolio of many individual stocks from a variety of industries and is managed by a professional fund manager. Mutual funds offer diversification and professional management of the money. Diversification reduces the risk because all stocks may not move in the same direction in the same proportion at the same time.

    • Insurance

      Insurance: Life Insurance helps in protecting yourself and your family against an unforeseen future. After deciding the amount of insurance that one requires, you need to decide on the policy that best suits your needs. Your insurance needs are dependent on your responsibilities and financial liabilities, which are defined by your life stage and your needs. If you have just begun a family, you need a policy that would provide for your child’s needs for higher overseas education, or marriage or a business venture. You also need to take a policy such that should something untoward happen to you; your family has the money to meet their daily expenses comfortably.

    • Structured Products

      Structured Products: A structured product is a pre-packaged investment strategy which is based on derivatives, such as a single security, a basket of securities, options, indices, commodities, debt issuances and foreign currencies and in some cases swaps. Some Structured products provide Capital Protection if the investment is held till maturity. Structured products were created to meet specific needs that cannot be met from the standardized financial instruments available in the markets. Structured products can be used as an alternative to a direct investment, as part of the asset allocation process to reduce risk exposure of a portfolio, or to utilize the current market trend.

    • Private Equity

      Private Equity: Private equity investments are investments into the equity securities of operating companies that are not publicly traded on a stock exchange. They are generally illiquid and thought of as a long-term investment. Private equity investments are not subject to the same high level of government regulation as stock offerings to the general public. Private equity is also far less liquid than publicly traded stock. Investments in private equity most often involve either an investment of capital into an operating company or the acquisition of an operating company.

    • Commodities

      Commodities: You may have your debt and equity investment in place, but investing in commodities could just be the one element to improve the returns and diversify the risk inherent in your portfolio. Commodity trading provides an ideal asset allocation, also helps you hedge against inflation and buy a piece of global demand growth. Investors must understand the demand cycles that commodities go through and should have a view on what factors may affect this. Because commodity prices generally rise when inflation is accelerating, they offer protection from the effects of inflation. Few assets benefit from rising inflation, particularly unexpected inflation, but commodities usually do. Commodity exposure can be taken either directly through the commodity exchange or through various funds with a mandate of investing in commodities.
