A dollar picked up in the road is more satisfaction to us than the 99 which we had to work for, and the money won at Faro or in the stock market snuggles into our hearts in the same way. ~Mark Twain INTRODUCTION A Portfolio is a combination of different investment assets mixed and matched for the purpose of achieving an investors goal(s). Portfolio management is the art of making decisions about investment mix and policies, matching investments to objectives, asset allocation for individuals and institutions, balancing risk against performance. They are, indeed, a step-by-step process of developing a personal roadmap for your financial wellbeing. Portfolio management is all about the strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats in choice of debt v/s equity, domestic v/s international and growth v/s safety encountered in the attempt to maximize return at a given appetite for risk. Portfolio management is also known as investment management. Portfolio management primarily reduces risk rather than increasing returns.
