What is net worth and how is it calculated? Net Worth is the difference between your assets and liabilities. Assets are what you own, such as property, stocks, bonds, bank accounts. Liabilities are what you owe to others like mortgages or credit card debt. Net worth measures your financial position – either positive (assets greater than liabilities) or negative (liabilities greater than assets).
Summing up, net worth is a measure of the value of an individual’s assets, minus any liabilities. Net worth can be calculated by subtracting your total liabilities from your total assets. The difference between these two numbers is net worth. The purpose of calculating net worth is to give people a general idea about their financial situation and where they stand in terms of what they own versus what they owe to others or have borrowed from someone else for example, when buying a house or taking out student loans for college.
Assets are typically things like cash, investments, real estate holdings, vehicles and collectibles; while liabilities include loans from banks or other institutions.
It can be a tricky number to calculate. It’s not as simple as adding up all of your assets like cash in bank accounts, stocks, bonds, retirement savings plans and real estate values. And it doesn’t take into account debts such as mortgages or credit card balances. However, if you’re looking for a rough idea, there are always simple methods that can be used to arrive at a reasonably plausible conclusion.
