An asset is a profitable business in the Grand Theft Auto series that can be bought or acquired by the player. After the completion of an asset's missions, money that can be picked up by the player is generated by the asset.
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Assets are first introduced in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. The player can buy other assets after completing the mission "Shakedown". After the purchase of an asset, the player can save his or her progress at the asset (except Phil's Place, since it's not owned by the player). The asset will generate profit once all the missions for the related asset have been completed. The profits are usually in the form of protection money.
