Definition of Net Worth

Net worth is the difference between your assets and debt. So, your net worth is found by taking the value of everything you owe away from the value of everything you own.

Another term for net worth is "wealth". A person's assets may include their property, cash, shares and debentures.

For example, if Al owns a car worth \(\$23,000\), a house worth \(\$400,000\), has \(\$2,500\) in his bank account and owes Sam \(\$500\), then Al's net worth is equal to

\(\$23,000 + \$400,000 + \$2,500 - \$500 = \$425,000\).
