Assets that can be converted quickly and easily into cash with virtually no loss in value. Examples of near money are savings account balances and Treasury bills.

near money

any easily saleable (liquid) ASSET that performs the function of MONEY as a STORE OF VALUE but not that of a universally acceptable MEDIUM OF EXCHANGE. CURRENCY (notes and coins) serves as a store of value and, being the most liquid of all assets, is universally accepted as a means of PAYMENT. However, building society deposits, National Savings deposits and Treasury bills are, respectively, less and less readily acceptable in their present form for making payments, and thus function as ‘near money’. See MONEY-SUPPLY DEFINITIONS.
