The Asset Management Universe
Jim Dieter, Executive DirectorAsset Leadership Network

The Asset Management universe is incredibly large and diverse. And like different planets in distant solar systems, we find it surprising that others doing Asset Management even exist! In the midst of incredible expertise in specific sectors and specific functions, little sharing and even less cross-fertilization is happening.  

Yet we are at a moment of amazing opportunity. ISO 55000 and a rising tide of international success stories means we have a proven approach and solution to age old problems – many of which have not yet even been identified by executives as problems, and critically – sources of organizational value.

What might each of us accomplish for our organizations if we find the means to traverse the distance between us, enhance our capabilities, and articulate this value vision to boards and executives? 


  • Identify the path to organizational value from asset management
  • Enhance mutual understanding and contribute to the practice of asset management
  • Build professional capability through sharing and opportunities for learning from others.
