The difference between the assets and liabilities of an individual, family, or other entity.

Sometimes known as net worth.


A large positive difference between assets and liabilities.

In the case of individuals or families, sometimes known as high net worth.


In shareholder value analysis, the term 'shareholders' wealth' is sometimes used in place of shareholder value.

It emphasises that shareholders' total wealth includes their cash, including cash derived from their investment in shares, as well as the current market value of the shares themselves (reflected in the share price).

This thinking may usefully lead to company management paying out cash from the company when appropriate, rather than keeping too much cash inside the company.


Abbreviation for wealth management services and related investments.
