Net Worth

Net worth is calculated using one’s assets and liabilities in order to provide an overview of their financial health. It can serve as a useful benchmark when setting savings goals; providing insight as to whether or not one is on track.

As well as cash in your pockets, liquid assets include bank accounts, certificates of deposit and stocks. Building your net worth through saving regularly and paying off debts as they come due is key for retirement success; spending more than you earn may signal that you need to cut expenses and save more.
