When a divorcing party is asked to list the assets they share with their soon-to-be ex, some obvious items may jump into their mind first. They may think of their home and their cars, as well as personal property like furniture, jewelry, and any artwork they may own. They may focus on the things that they can see and touch, but they may forget some of their most important and financially-significant assets: investments, business holdings, and retirement funds.
Assets that exist in banks, the stock market, and other financial tools can make up the bulk of a couple’s financial portfolio. While it is often the sentimental items of property that individuals squabble over, they may lose sight of what happens to the less conspicuous shared resources.
