Liquidity

This refers to the level of assets which can readily be converted to cash.

The level of liquidity includes the amount of cash, cash equivalents and any other assets which can be readily traded for cash; this might include shares in a large listed company or government bonds, rather than private shareholdings or loans which might be harder to liquidate.

Liquidity is a term normally found in financial management and business economics.
