The Rising Value of Intangible Assets: Why a Strong Brand is Crucial for Business Success

A study by Ocean Tomo found that intangible assets now make up 84% of the value of the S&P 500 index, up from 17% in 1975. This shift is driven by a number of factors such as the rise of the knowledge economy, the globalisation of business and the increasing importance of intellectual property.


Intangible assets include patents, trademarks, copyrights and brands. While it’s difficult to put an exact figure on the value of a brand, it’s clear that it plays a significant role in a company’s overall worth. A study by InterBrand and S&P Global found that the top 39 global brands are worth an average of 26% of their intangible assets. This means that for every $100 of a company’s intangible assets, $26 can be attributed to the brand alone. 


A strong brand, therefore, will have a significant impact on a company’s value.

Building a Brand Identity

Your brand’s communication strategy is critical to building a strong and consistent message that resonates with your audience. I can help you make the right decisions on how, what, where, when and to whom you communicate your message.


By implementing a well-executed branding strategy, your brand equity will grow. The added value to your products or services allows you to charge a premium compared to unbranded products. Your audience will recognise and be willing to pay more for your high-quality brand. This also increases customer loyalty and positive word-of-mouth marketing, resulting in repeat business and continued growth.
