The list shows comprehensively how investing in marketing to strengthen the brand pays off over the long term.

As Brand Finance CEO and CIM fellow David Haigh puts it:

?These brands are worth billions of dollars. In the case of HSBC, $27.6bn. These assets have been created by careful marketing and planning over the long term. Marketers ought to show this list to their financial directors. They should use it as proof that brands are worth investing in. Get your strategy right, and back that up with the right resources, and you can create an extraordinarily valuable and durable asset that can grow in value over decades.?

Brand valuation company Brand Finance produced the list for The Marketer. For the full details of how the calculations were done, read the article.
