Estate Liquidity

« Back to Glossary Index

Estate liquidity refers to the ability of an estate to quickly and easily convert its assets into cash in order to meet its financial obligations, such as paying taxes or debts owed.

An estate with high liquidity is able to access its assets quickly and without significant loss of value, while an estate with low liquidity may have to sell assets at a discount or take out loans in order to meet its financial obligations.

In some cases, estate liquidity can be improved through careful estate planning, such as setting up trusts or insurance policies that can provide a source of cash to cover expenses or pay off debts.

Estate liquidity can be an important consideration for individuals or families with significant assets or complex financial situations.
