Anything you own that has cash value. Assets aren’t limited to what’s in your bank account. Your home, your car, your stamp collection: all assets. Assets that are cash or can be turned into cash quickly (like cash or stocks) are called “liquid assets,” whereas the ones that are difficult to turn into cash quickly (like a home or a boat) are called “illiquid.” (See also: Liquidity, Liability)
