Equity

In mortgage lending, the difference between the value of your property and your current mortgage. If your current mortgage balance exceeds the value of your property you are in `negative equity`. Ideally, throughout the course of a mortgage your equity would increase.

In investment-speak, the term can be defined as anything which represents ownership interests and therefore often refers to stocks and shares.
