An asset is a profitable business in the Grand Theft Auto series. Assets can be bought or acquired by the player. After the completion of an asset's missions, money is generated by the asset and can be picked up by the player.
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. You can spend a total of $400,000 if you buy ALL the assets. In the iOS port, the prices of all assets are cut in half.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories expanded the idea of assets into building a business empire that will generate income from many types of businesses. After killing Marty Jay Williams , Victor can take over all of his empire buildings. Players can unlock more businesses by completing storyline missions or attacking other gang-owned buildings , including the Cholos, Vice City Bikers, and Sharks.
When the player completes an asset mission, it will unlock a special outfit which represents the asset and its profit will be doubled. If the player completes all of the asset missions, the car unlocked with each asset will become bulletproof.
