Thanks. Balance sheets often refer to "cash and cash equivalents," although this has become reduced to "cash and equivalents".

securities


Explanation:
Might it not be the slightly more specific "securities" in addition to the hard cash (numéraire).


security = titre de placement n. m.

Syn.
titre n. m.
valeur mobilière n. f.
valeur n. f.



Déf. :
Instrument négociable, coté ou susceptible de l'être, représentant selon le cas une part du capital social de l'émetteur (action ou part), une part d'un emprunt à long terme émis par une société ou une collectivité publique (obligation), un droit de souscrire une valeur de l'émetteur (bon ou droit de souscription), ou encore une option ou un contrat à terme négociable sur une marchandise, sur une valeur ou sur un autre instrument financier.


Note :
Les lois sur les valeurs mobilières donnent habituellement une description détaillée des titres de placement auxquels elles s'appliquent.
Les valeurs sont dites « mobilières » car elles sont représentatives de droits mobiliers, c'est-à-dire de créances ou de participations qui peuvent être transmises aisément.
Le terme « Titre mobilier » n'a pas été retenu en raison de sa faible fréquence d'utilisation
