Liquidity is defined as "the ability of an individual or business to quickly convert assets into cash without incurring a considerable loss." There are two kinds of Liquidity: quick and current . Quick liquidity refers to funds, cash, short-term investments, and government bonds - possessions which can immediately be converted into cash in the case of an emergency. Current liquidity refers to current liquidity plus possessions such as real estate which cannot be immediately liquidated, but can be sold and converted into cash eventually. Quick liquidity is a subset of Current Liquidity. Again, the importance of Liquidity has to do with how fast and how much cash an insurance company can get their hands on in case there is a disaster and they need to pay off claims. This reflects the financial stability of a company and thus their rating.
