What is a Portfolio Manager?
Only experienced investment advisors become portfolio managers after they have met strict industry-wide qualifications for education, assets under management and investment experience. Only then, are they licensed to provide this level of discretionary investment management. Before managing money for clients, an Investment Policy Statement (IPS) is created to capture their unique needs and requirements. The IPS becomes the specific mandate that details all your objectives, goals and constraints in managing your portfolio. This transforms into a master plan that we create to manage your portfolio.
