Leveraging intangible assets to build a competitive edge


Today, more than 87% of company value resides in intangible assets, however these are largely absent from balance sheets and risk registers. If 87% of value (and virtually all earnings growth) is driven by intangible assets, then it makes sense that intangible assets are now a major source of company risk. Failing to identify, manage or mitigate the risk around these critical assets can lead to catastrophic results.

This webinar will cover:

  • What are intangible assets and why are they important
  • How to identify and leverage your intangible assets to build and protect a competitive edge
  • The key intangible asset risks and how you can mitigate these

Webinars are free for RIMS members and $50.00 USD for non-members
