Investment vehicles are the assets (classes) in which investors put their money with hopes to increase the value of their portfolio in the future.
An investment vehicle is an asset or product used by investors to gain significant returns
. Investment vehicles usually include securities such as stocks and bonds as well as investments including mutual funds and EFTs
These elements can also be seen in the crypto space. These crypto-tied investment vehicles are a product used by investors to generate returns within the DeFi
sector. Also known as a cryptocurrency fund, they are composed entirely of digital assets
. Using these crypto-tied investment vehicles, traders can select their preference depending on the category risk, the assets involved, the regulations, restrictions, and diversification.
The category clarifies the type of regulation under which the investment vehicle falls and what type of investors can access it. For instance, products for retail investors tend to have more asset-type restrictions while using derivatives
and concentration risks.
