Today, intellectual property assets such as copyrights, trademarks, and patents are at the front line of global economics. In 2019, AON and Ponemon Institute published a report showcasing the importance of intangible assets and their risk factors. According to them, “intellectual property rights are rapidly becoming a key basis of wealth.”

As a result, it is common to find an imbalance in a listed company’s market capitalization value and its net asset backing. Given the contribution intellectual property has to the overall value of your company, it is essential for businesses to manage their assets appropriately. This includes accurate valuation of intellectual property. But what is the importance of an accurate intellectual property valuation? What do you get to gain from it?
