Complete assessment of financial-assets management

Financial-assets are instruments which derive value from long-term or short-term contractual agreements. These agreements are mainly between lenders and borrowers.

  1. Government borrows from public giving rise to bonds.
  2. Commercial banks cash acceptances from public create cash deposits.
  3. Listed companies offer ownership rights to the general public thus create stocks.

     These assets are near money.

 Financial instruments are quickly liquidated.  You can dispose of these assets by following a short procedure. This is done through the capital markets facilitated by stock brokers.

The  market brings together buyers and sellers of financial-assets.

You just have to place a sale bid with a prevailing market price. A corresponding buyer unknown to you will bid a purchase price prevailing in the market too. Your stock broker fulfills the trade for both of you. Including processing payments.

 It’s quite straight forward.
