Asset Classes




Typically referred to as shareholder’s equity, it represents the amount of money that would be returned to a shareholder if all of the assets were liquidated, and the company’s debt was paid off. It is a degree ownership in any asset after subtracting all debts associated with that asset, representing the shareholder’s stake in the company. One of the most common financial metrics employed by analysts to assess the financial health of a company, it can also represent a company’s book value.
