What are equity, bond and real estate assets?

5 November 2013 |

In simple terms, a stock is a proof of ownership. So if you buy a stock, you buy a small part of a company. When you purchase a bond, you lend a company a certain amount of money for a certain period of time. Real estate, land or buildings, is an asset class that is more suitable for a long-term investment.
