Would like to classify all funds the same ie: Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) , Mutual funds etc. What data item code can I use that will blanket cover the different funds?

I would like to access a field which classifies the different types of funds into their 'Asset Type' such as Equity, Bond, Mixed - as depicted in column: GN_TX20_15 in the attached screenshot. Unfortunately it seems ETF's do not subscribe to this data point. Therefore I am enquiring about what data points can be used to classify funds of different types (are common) - similar to the shown Classification Sector Name but on a higher/less-detailed level.

Additionally - is there a way to see the Equity/Bond split for the Mixed Asset type fund ie:

Hi @J13513,

As Chavalit said, it is better to raise non-technical questions to help-desk. They will properly track your queries. For your particular questions, (1) if all you need is the field "GN_TX20_15" shown in your screen, then I believe it is simply the Asset type of the fund. You can get it from the filed: TR.FundType.

(2) For Equity/Bond Split, I think you can get the information from the Asset Allocations if the fund provides that data to Refinitiv/Lipper. For your sample fund, I got the data below using the fields: "TR.FundAssetAllocation" and "TR.FundAllocationName"

ID	Asset Allocation % of TNA	Allocation Name
LP68230490	63.2	Bonds
LP68230490	32.7	Equities
LP68230490	4	Cash
LP68230490	0.1	Others
