Do you know how much your brand is worth?

At a recent panel on Branding in asset management, I was asked how you can calculate the value of your brand.  Sadly, the answer was not a simple x+y=£.  In fact, since researching the topic further I found there is no one clear answer to how you value your brand equity and show its worth on the balance sheet.

With all the evaluation metrics we now have available and an agreed international standard for brand equity valuation, we now have the tools at hand to demonstrate ROI and how brand and marketing can create significant value for both the business and their shareholders.
