How To Understand The Basics of Investing
Educating the Public on Responsible Investment
Learn how to understand the basics of investing. There are two categories that investments fall into, financial/paper assets and real/tangible assets. Financial assets can easily be turned into cash because they can be sold or accessed quickly. Some examples of financial assets are bank deposits, money market accounts, stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. The other category is real assets that include raw land, rentals, or other physical forms of real estate. Real assets take longer to sell and therefore take longer to access cash.
