Ocean Tomo Indexes

The transformation of the global economy to a knowledge economy has placed an unprecedented focus on companies’ intangible assets, including intellectual property assets: patents, trademarks and copyrights. The economic inversion in the relative importance of tangible assets to intangible assets experienced over the last three decades carries significant implications for the investment community.

Ocean Tomo's suite of patent-based indexes and investable securities thereupon that provide investors, asset managers and financial advisors with compelling investment options and viable benchmarks. The indexes and securities are IP-centric: inclusion in an Ocean Tomo Index reflects corporate intellectual property value relative to traditional financial value. By constructing indexes and securities around the fundamental indicators of performance in the knowledge economy, Ocean Tomo Indexes and their related securities give the investment community access to, and benchmarks for, the leading asset of the knowledge economy, intellectual capital.
