Non liquid asset

What is a non-liquid asset?

A non-liquid asset is an asset that cannot be easily converted into cash without potentially losing a significant percentage of its value. Examples include real estate, equipment, or a privately-held company's stock.

While non-liquid assets can still be very valuable, their lack of liquidity can pose challenges. For instance, in a cash flow crisis, it may be difficult to sell these assets quickly without accepting a lower price. This lack of liquidity is why startup founders often have a significant portion of their net worth tied up in non-liquid assets—their own company's stock.
