Investing in asset management’s next generation

Cardno’s next generation of asset management professionals and leaders from across the Asia Pacific region have completed the Foundation Award in asset management earlier this month.

The Foundation Award is a globally recognised qualification administered by the Institute of Asset Management aimed at those starting out in the discipline or those who work in roles that support or interface with asset management activities.

The course covers the breadth of the Global Forum on Maintenance & Asset Management (GFMAM) asset management landscape, as well as introducing conceptual models and international standards for asset management, ISO55001.

The course also emphasises the importance of considering cost and risk in decision making, as well as the often-overlooked supporting enablers of people and resources.

Susan Chamberlain, Team Leader – Asset Strategies, in the Asia Pacific region spoke on the importance of developing tomorrow’s asset management professionals.

“Nurturing the next crop of asset management professionals is really important to us,” Susan said.

“Career paths in asset management often follow the road less travelled and there can be a lack of career direction compared with other professional disciplines.

“Having a solid basis of knowledge is important to allow careers to develop and progress, often into more specialised areas.”
