According to an Accenture report, nearly 60 percent of the aggregate value of the U.S. stock market is based on investor expectations of future growth. These future values are tied to the intangible assets that are, in most cases, tied to brand equity. Whether you are in marketing, operations, finance, human resources or any other area, it is important to understand how you can help contribute to the growth of your company’s brand or brands’ value over time on a global scale.
