This paper describes asset management as the business system that enables a company to collect, maintain and manage a complete list of all the components possessed by the company. The paper then goes on to explain the concept and main objective of asset management. The paper also reviews another paper written on the related topic of estimating the costs of capital, explaining that, in the paper, the authors strived to find out the appropriate method for estimation of cost of capital with respect to insurance firms and that they proved their method (the full-information beta approach) to be an appropriate and dependable one.

From the Paper:

"The difficulties in the estimation of the divisional cost of the capital are indicated to be the conglomerate firm itself instead of the division traded in the capital market. Universally, the pure play technique is applied to attain the desired results but specifically at the circumstances when a relatively large number of pure play firms of various sizes are found where it does not entail a satisfactory solution to the divisional cost of capital problem. Therefore, the paper applies a comparatively, new methodology, the full formation industry beta approach that resolves the principal problems of the pure play methodology. The paper mainly concentrates on demonstration of the full-information beta approach to cost of capital estimation applying a sample embracing all firms-insurance and non-insurance listed in the Compustat data base that caters to the selection criteria for the sample period 1997-2000."
