First of all, we define that an Asset is any object of material value, tangible or intangible, which is part of a company or any other profitable enterprise.

Assets can be companies, commodities, bonds, stocks, lands, buildings, currencies and financial investments, among others.

Intangible assets represent brands, patents and “good will” among others.

In finance, an investment is a sum of money which is exchanged for an asset or a financial document representing an asset, hoping to earn a profit later on.
