Portfolio Review – More Important than Ever

What are the key drivers of a Portfolio?

Interestingly enough, it is,

  • 4.6% Security Selection
  • 2.1% Market Timing
  • 1.8% Other Factors
  • 91.5% Asset Allocation
With reams of market data to analyse and hundreds of studies to refer to, we can safely say that the ability to time the market, anticipate global economic changes, or forecast investor psychology are all important, but not THE important step towards optimising investments. As mentioned above, the performance of a portfolio is 91.5% dependent on a process known as asset allocation — the science of combining the right categories of investments in proportions that is just right for you.

This concept was originally developed by Nobel laureate Dr Harry Markowitz of the University of Chicago. Over the years, large pension-fund managers and other institutional investors have benefited from this approach. Even individual investors are taking advantage of this methodology to optimise their investments.

What is a portfolio review service?

When we provide a portfolio review service, we completely break down your investment portfolio and analyse it. The aim is to align your portfolio as per your financial goals and preferences. A portfolio review exercise involves the readjusting and rebalancing of your portfolio according to changes in the circumstances, risk appetite, performance of the investment portfolio and/or in the investment objectives. Historical asset class performance, inflation and other related factors are also considered in this review.

The portfolio review service is not just about creating a plan but also continuing to monitor it. Both are key factors in long-term financial success. Capital growth, security of principal amount invested, portfolio diversification and consistent returns are the objectives that form the focal point of portfolio review and designs. A portfolio review keeps the best possible outcome out of your investments as the foremost objective.

What does a portfolio review service achieve?

Some of the key achievements that you will enjoy because of portfolio review include:

Overlapping investments – A might identify investments that are the same or similar. For instance, you may have invested in different mutual funds which essentially have a similar stock portfolio. This would double your risk exposure to that segment of the market.

Identifying underperformance – If you are reinvesting your National Saving Certificates and have no intention of using them in the medium-term, you may consider converting the fund to a PF account, if the latter is offering a higher rate of interest. If you have a SIP or even a share that is yielding much less than alternate options, maybe you can consider shifting such investments.

Idle money – A portfolio review may result in the putting of idle money to good use. If you have unnecessarily stacked up funds in your savings account you can instead link it to the market with investments as per your liquidity needs.

Save taxes – You may be losing out on tax-saving opportunities by not changing your investment patterns. If you have a 4-year FD, you can consider the five-year tax free FD instead. Similarly, if you have equity mutual fund investments, you can check if investing in the tax-free equity-linked saving scheme would be more beneficial.

Risk profiling – Risk profiling is a process we use to help determine the optimal levels of investment risk for clients. It aims to identify the risk required to meet your investment objectives, your risk capacity, and your tolerance to risk.

  • Risk Required – refers to the level of risk required to be taken on investments to achieve your desired level of investment return.
  • Risk Capacity – refers to the level of investment risk (or losses) that you can afford to take.
  • Risk Tolerance –refers to the level of risk youʼre comfortable taking
