Objectives of the Society

The Intangible Asset Finance Society is the premier trusted and authoritative global resource for executives seeking to improve their companies’ financial performances with better intangible asset management. Through education, advocacy, and the promulgation of best practice standards, the Society enables its professional members to implement integrated enterprise-wide strategies that foster a more ethical and innovative business culture, increase the quality, safety, sustainability and security of goods and services, and enhance reputations. The Society offers a large tent; we invite professionals from backgrounds including but not limited to operations, law, communications, risk management, and finance to join us.

  • IAFS Meetings, Education And Networking. IAFS provides several educational and networking opportunities each year that bring together experts from the United States and abroad to discuss trends and recent development in intangible asset finance.
  • Public Awareness: Educating the Finance and Legal Community. IAFS views public education concerning intangible asset value and risk management as an increasingly important issue. Intangible asset financial management has been challenged in connection with controversies including international transfer pricing, charitable donations, and the exercise of corporate Board due diligence.
  • Standing IAFS Committees. The Society has standing committees that address areas of intangible asset finance practice. Committees sponsor presentations at meetings, endorse peer-reviewed papers for publication, and promulgate practice standard recommendations for adoption by the Society’s Secretariat.
