Net Worth is a key measure of how much an individual or business is worth. It is the value of total assets minus total debt owed. Consider the following example, you own a property worth $850,000, a car worth $30,000 and an investment portfolio with a market value of $100,000. However, you have an outstanding mortgage balance of $200,000 and a car loan of $10,000. You therefore, have assets of $980,000 but debt of $210,000. So your net worth is $980,000 – $210,000 = $770,000
