The Objective

In doing some research to explore the question ‘Is venture capital an asset class?’ I needed to verify certain aspects of asset classes more generally.

As such I went looking for a table of asset classes. As it does this lead to some other questions, which I have not been able to get satisfactory answers to.

So, rather than leave the thought as an unfinished one waiting for further research I thought it more beneficial to post what I am trying to do here and seek input. Of course I also know where to find the train of thought and develop on it as new things come along.


What is an Asset Class

Please see the ‘Venture Capital is a sub-asset class of its own‘ post for further details.


Table of Asset Classes

The table of Asset Classes is intended to be a matrix providing a list of the asset classes, and then applicable sub-asset classes beneath each class.

Within the matrix characteristics and behaviours of each asset/sub-asset class are listed (or to be listed).
