Broadly speaking, asset management refers to any system that monitors and maintains anything of value to an entity or group. This management applies to both tangible assets, such as buildings, and intangible assets, such as people, intellectual property rights, goodwill, and financial assets.
Asset management is a systematic process to develop, operate, maintain, and increase the usefulness of assets in a cost-effective manner.
The term asset management is also often used narrowly in the financial sector to describe human resources and companies that manage investments on behalf of others, such as investment managers who manage pension fund assets.
Explicitly, the definition of an asset from an economic point of view is an item (thing or anything) that is owned by an individual or organization that has:
- Economic Value (Economic Value ),
- Commercial Value (Commercial Value), and
- Exchange Value (Exchange Value).
Asset management aims to keep the value of these assets high and have a long life by providing adequate operating costs so that they can produce high output efficiently, provide satisfaction to customers while respecting the laws and regulations and aspects of work safety, and without disturbing the environment provide a good image to the public.
So, in general, the purpose of asset management is to assist an entity in meeting the objectives of providing services in an optimal, effective, and efficient manner.
This includes planning, guiding procurement, utilization, optimization, elimination, and management of associated risks and costs over the life cycle of the asset. Asset management also aims to determine the clarity of asset ownership so that asset owners can safely and not face legal problems in utilizing their assets.
