Equity in economics refers to the ownership of an asset after all debts associated with the asset are paid off. Stocks are therefore counted as equity because they represent ownership in a company. Equity trading is done in anticipation of income from dividends and capital gains as the value of the stock rises. Equity trading in many cases is therefore seen as secondary investment. The intricacies and value of this kind of business is what brought Vantage Capital on the scene.
