Net Worth is the best way to measure your financial health.

What is Net Worth?

Net Worth measures your overall wealth, taking into account assets as well as liabilities.

Net Worth is the value of everything you own and goes beyond the amount of money you have in your savings account. For example, money in your bank account, the value of your home, your stock investments, your car, and even your debts can all collectively impact your net worth.

Liabilities and Assets Defined by T-chart:

Assets - Liabilities = Net Worth

Assets Liabilities
Real Estate Mortgage
Cars Car Loans
Cash Student loans
Stocks Margin Loans
Retirement Funds Personal Loans
Inheritance Money Owed to Friends/Family
College 529 Plans Kids College Fees

Why is Knowing Your Net Worth Important?

By understanding what your net worth is, you can get ahead on managing your financial life. There isn’t one number that can determine your financial health in an instant, rather you should organize and track your progress, seeking to improve your net worth over time.
