In a growing economy, this is the asset class which gives best and consistent returns over a reasonably long period. You need to have patience and the skill to select the organisations - which have a good business model and a management respecting / adhering to corporate governance norms.
Such businesses will grow over a period of time and correspondingly the stakeholders will also reap the benefits.
Over short to short-medium term, this asset class can be risky. So, one should invest in equities only funds that are not required in immediate / near future.
