|Restricted cash||Restricted cash
Our restricted cash balance was $179.0 million and $211.0 million as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively, and was primarily related to our ECA financings and Ex-Im financings, our AerFunding revolving credit facility and other debt. See Note 14—Debt.
The following is a summary of our cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash as of December 31, 2019 and 2018:
The entire disclosure for cash and cash equivalent footnotes, which may include the types of deposits and money market instruments, applicable carrying amounts, restricted amounts and compensating balance arrangements. Cash and equivalents include: (1) currency on hand (2) demand deposits with banks or financial institutions (3) other kinds of accounts that have the general characteristics of demand deposits (4) short-term, highly liquid investments that are both readily convertible to known amounts of cash and so near their maturity that they present insignificant risk of changes in value because of changes in interest rates. Generally, only investments maturing within three months from the date of acquisition qualify.
