  19. 19. Basic Liquidity Ratio This ratio shows that this person could pay their monthly expenses for 1.25 months using monetary assets. Using the information from the Balance Sheet earlier in this presentation Basic Liquidity Ratio = Monetary (Liquid) Assets Monthly Expenses = $1,800 $1,445 = 1.25
  20. 20. Liquidity Ratio This ratio shows that this person has $1.11 liquid assets for every $1 of current liabilities. Using the information from the Balance Sheet earlier in this presentation Liquidity Ratio = Liquid Assets Current Liabilities = $1,800 $1,620 = 1.11
  21. 21. Debt-to-Asset Ratio Debt-to-Asset Ratio = Total Debt Total Assets = $3,620 $6,200 = .58 If your debt is greater than your assets you are technically insolvent.
  22. 22. Debt Service-to-Income Ratio Debt Service-to-Income Ratio = AnnualDebt Repayment Gross Income = $1,800 $12,000 = .15 or 15% 1 2 <ul><li>The Annual Debt Payment for this calculation includes mortgage </li></ul><ul><li>Annual debt payment in this example is the car loan monthly payment x 12 months ($150 x 12 = $1,800). </li></ul>A ratio of 36% or less indicates that gross income is adequate to make debt repayments.
  23. 23. Debt Payment-to-Disposable Income Ratio Debt Payment-to- Disposable Income Ratio = Monthly nonmortgage debt payments Disposable income Disposable income is the amount of take-home pay remaining after all deductions are withheld for taxes.

  30. 30. Key Words and Concepts Financial Planning is the process of developing and implementing a coordinated series of financial plans to achieve financial success. Values are fundamental beliefs about what is important, desirable, and worthwhile. Financial Goals are the specific long- and short-term objectives to be attained through financial planning and management efforts. Financial Strategies are preestablished plans of action to be implemented in specific situations. Financial Statements are compilations of personal financial data designed to communicate information on money matters. Balance Sheet (or net worth statement) describes an individual’s or family’s financial condition on a specified date. Income and Expense (or cash flow) Statement lists and summarizes income and expense transactions that have taken place over a specific period of time. Assets include everything you own that has monetary value. Liabilities are your debt. Net Worth is the dollar amount left when what is owed is subtracted from the dollar value of what is owned. Everything should be calculated at fair market value.
  31. 31. Key Words and Concepts (Cont.) Fair Market Value is the amount a buyer would pay a willing seller. Monetary Assets (or liquid assets) include cash and near-cash items that can be readily converted to cash. Tangible (or use) Assets are physical assets that have fairly long lifespans and could be sold to raise cash but whose primary purpose is to provide maintenance of one’s lifestyle. Investment assets (also known as capital assets) include tangible and intangible items acquired for the monetary benefits they provide. Diversification of investments means the investor puts money in a variety of investments. Short-term (or current) Liability is an obligation that will be paid off within one year. Long-term Liability is an obligation that will be paid off in more than one year. Insolvent means net worth is negative. Fixed Expenses are usually paid in the same amount during each time period. Variable Expenses are expenditures over which and individual has considerable control. Net Gain/Loss shows the amount of money left after you subtract expenses from income. Financial Ratios are objective numerical calculations designed to simplify making judgmental assessments of financial strength over time.
  32. 32. Key Words and Concepts (Concl.) Liquidity is the speed and ease with which an asset can be converted into cash. Financial Ratios: Basic Liquidity Ratio: monetary (liquid) assets monetary expenses Reveals the number of months a family could continue to meets its expenses from monetary assets after a total loss of income. Families should have a basic liquidity ratio of 3. Debt-to-Asset Ratio: total debt total assets Measures the solvency and ability to pay debt Debt Service-to-Income Ratio: annual debt repayments gross income Provides an incisive view of the total debt burden of an individual. A ratio of .36 or less indicates that gross income is adequate to make debt repayments. Investment Assets-to-Net Worth Ratio: investment assets net worth Expresses how well an individual is advancing toward their financial goals for capital accumulation. Experts recommend 50% or higher.
