The article studies and analyses classification features of investments, provided by domestic and foreign economists. It systemises main classification features and identifies such ones that facilitate identification of investments as an economic category. It considers the most frequently used, from the point of view of revelation of economic essence of the "investments" category, classification features: by the object of investment, by the term of investment, by regional features of investment, by forms of ownership on investment resources, by the degree of risk and by the character of participation in investment. It presents a classification of investments with consideration of execution of the investment process, which would allow systematisation of understanding the essence of classification features of investments in accordance with the investment process.
