An asset is a resource that has value, owned by either a company or an individual. Assets can be anything that can or will be converted to cash to benefit the company or individual in the future. These can include real estate, mutual funds, land, copyrights, trademarks, and even jewellery.

    Assets are initially obtained through investing, or spending a fair amount of money at one point in time in order to obtain more in the future. It is a good idea to be aware of your assets’ value to know whether they can gain value over time.

There are many different types of assets and investments and this module will provide an overview of the two concepts.
