Step 1- Understanding the client : The first and the foremost step of investment process is to understand the client or the investor his/her needs. After getting an insight of the goals and restraints of the client, it is important to set a benchmark for the client’s portfolio management process which will help in evaluating the performance and check whether the client’s objectives are achieved.
Step 2- Asset allocation decision: This step involves decision on how to allocate the investment across different asset classes, i.e. fixed income securities, equity, real estate etc. It also involves decision of whether to invest in domestic assets or in foreign assets. The investor will make this decision after considering the macroeconomic conditions and overall market status.
Step 3- Portfolio strategy selection: Third step in the investment process is to select the proper strategy of portfolio creation. Choosing the right strategy for portfolio creation is very important as it forms the basis of selecting the assets that will be added in the portfolio management process. The strategy that conforms to the investment policies and investment objectives should be selected.
There are two types of portfolio strategy.
- Active Management Process
- Passive Management Process
Active portfolio management process refers to a strategy where the objective of investing is to outperform the market return compared to a specific benchmark by either buying securities that are undervalued or by short selling securities that are overvalued. In this strategy, risk and return both are high. This strategy is a proactive strategy it requires close attention by the investor or the fund manager.
Passive portfolio management process refers to the strategy where the purpose is to generate returns equal to that of the market. It is a reactive strategy as the fund manager or the investor reacts after the market has responded.
Step 4- Asset selection decision: The investor needs to select the assets to be placed in the portfolio management process in the fourth step. Within each asset class, there are different sub asset-classes. For example, in equity, which stocks should be chosen? Within the fixed income securities class, which bonds should be chosen?
Also, the investment objectives should conform to the investment policies because otherwise the main purpose of investment management process would become meaningless.
Step 5- Evaluating portfolio performance: This is the final step in the investment process which evaluates the portfolio management performance. This is an important investing process step as it measures the performance of the investment with respect to a benchmark, in both absolute and relative terms. The investor would determine whether his objectives are being achieved or not.
