Most businesses have a long list of assets. Assets such as physical property, intellectual property, and equipment are important because they increase the value of a business. However, the act of securing assets can be quite complex for those unfamiliar with investing. When it comes to purchasing assets, there are a wide variety of investment structures that a business could use. Investment structures define the way in which assets are owned. For example, assets can be owned by an individual under their own name, as a partnership, as a company, and as a trust.
Depending on the asset class and investment style, assets can be purchased using investment structures including single-asset funds, multi-manager funds, and multi-asset funds. The type of investment structure chosen may depend on a variety of factors- particularly shareholder risk protection.
