New Zealand Asset Management Support (NAMS) has led the development of asset management best practice within New Zealand since 1995.
NAMS is a non-profit industry organisation established to promote asset management through the development of best practice guidelines and training. NAMS provides a hub through which industry professionals can both gain and distribute information on the latest developments in asset management. The NAMS Group’s manuals and guidelines are not only distributed worldwide, they are also well recognised and represent the world’s best practice. NAMS also offers a range of training services customised to the needs of those who are new to asset management and those who are currently practicing the skills of asset management best practice.
NAMS is currently managed by a team of four board members, who are dedicated in continuing the ongoing research and development of asset management support in New Zealand and worldwide. In addition to this, NAMS has the support of its parent company IPWEA NZ who provide the ongoing tools to help NAMS grow.

Our Brand Identity
In August 2010, NAMS officially launched its new visual identity. The aim was to create a visual identity that reflects NAMS mission and core values. It is an identity that reinforces the idea that wherever we work in the world, we are working towards one mission of ‘Promoting excellence in Infrastructure Asset Management’ under our recognised brand name – NAMS.
When the acronym was first formed, it stood for the National Asset Management Steering Group. These words no longer reflect what NAMS is or what we do. Recognising the value held in the name NAMS, the Board decided to keep the name NAMS, but to change the words - deciding upon New Zealand Asset Management Support.
We are now able to be identified as a New Zealand entity and the new logo reflects this by representing our Kiwi ingenuity for being innovative, pioneers and leaders on a global scale.
