According to the ‘Personal Finance’ portal, assets are divided into two types:

– Current assets: They refer to assets that become liquid assets, that is, when the time comes for their sale, they can be converted into cash without losing their value. An example of this is investment funds or cash deposits.

– Non-current assets: They are known as fixed assets and are those assets that cannot be converted into cash, such as a patent, a brand, property such as a house or an apartment.
