IA/IP Management


Intangible Assets (IA) and Intellectual Property (IP) are your company’s most valuable assets. Global IA value stands at an all-time high of more than US$65 trillion, surpassing the value of tangible assets.1 This trend applies to Singapore. However, although 45% of local SMEs have engaged in IA/IP commercialisation activities, the majority of SMEs do not have IA/IP management functions in Singapore.2

Managing IA/IP is key to the success of these commercialisation activities and growing corporate value. Key benefits of effective IA/IP management include:

 Accelerated business expansion and shortened time to market

 Sharper investment decisions

 Sustained competitive advantages and business goodwill

 Mitigation of business risks and protection from competition
