Capital Appreciation Definition

Capital appreciation is when the value of an asset increases. Generally, the increase is due to an increase in the market price. This typically occurs when an investor purchased an asset for one price and now demands a higher price. Furthermore, you calculate it by subtracting the original investment cost from the new market value.
