An asset is something which any individual, organization or country owns with expectation for future benefit. They are mapped on company’s balance sheet and created/ bought to increase firm’s value.  Once asset is purchased and started getting used, it starts depreciating on periodic/ monthly basis. In layman terms, we all use assets like properties, mutual funds, bonds, etc. until they reach a profitable value and then sell it off to secure our finances.
