asset class

Any type of financial transaction that can be converted into a standardized, quantifiable, negotiable asset. The use of derivatives has given rise to the creation of several significant asset classes, such as mortgage-backed securities. Insurance-linked securities also represent a new asset class. Stocks and bonds are the best-known asset classes.
