Asset Management for Directors

by Monique Beedles

Asset Management for Directors

Delivering value from the company’s assets is one of the key roles of the board. Accordingly, it’s critical that company directors have a thorough understanding of asset management principles and how they apply to board decision making.

Today’s board directors are faced with an increasingly complex operating environment. There is greater scrutiny from shareholders and regulators, and a diminishing ability to predict the future based on past experience. Despite this, the board uses its best collective judgement to continue to make decisions in the best interests of the company.

Asset Management for Directors aims to provide a clear framework for directors to address their asset management obligations. Creating value from the company’s assets is a key responsibility of the board and forms part of its fiduciary duty. In this sense, board directors are asset managers.

Through the context of the board’s governance roles, this book outlines the importance of asset management from the board’s perspective. The key points directors need to know about asset management are provided, without addressing technical aspects in too much detail. Rather, the book aims to inform the director who is not necessarily an expert in asset management on the fundamental knowledge they need to understand their company’s asset management practices and to ask pertinent questions of management.

Each chapter includes a brief case study to highlight how the principles are applied in practice. These case studies cover a wide range of industries and help to illustrate the array of asset types, both tangible and intangible, for which boards are responsible.
