Lecture 1, BUS 136, Investments, UC 7 Real Assets v.s. Financial Assets This course is concerned with investing in financial assets as opposed to investing in real assets. Real assets can be used directly to produce goods and services (e.g. land, building, machine, human capital) Financial assets represent claims on real assets and/or income generated by them (e.g.: GE stocks represent claims on GE’s real assets and incomes) Within the universe of financial assets, we will primarily focus on stocks in this class.
