Net worth is a measure of how much money remains after paying all debts and investing any available savings into assets such as cash, investments, retirement accounts, cars or real estate.
Net worths can be positive, zero or negative – they are an invaluable indicator of financial health and can indicate whether there is enough of a cushion should something arise which requires you to lose your job or cause other hardships in life.
Calculating your net worth requires listing all assets and liabilities, then subtracting liabilities from assets. A negative net worth indicates you have more liabilities than assets while positive numbers show less liabilities than assets. Your net worth will fluctuate as assets gain interest or deplete while liabilities increase or decrease – thus altering its calculation each time.
