Short-term investments refer to any asset that a company holds that can be converted into cash within the next year. These investments usually have a maturity period of less than one year and are considered highly liquid. Examples of short-term investments include certificates of deposit, money market funds, and government bonds. This metric is an important indicator of a company's liquidity and ability to meet short-term financial obligations. It is often reported on a company's balance sheet under the heading “Current Assets”.
