Investment Management

What is an investment?

An investment is an asset or item that is purchased with the expectation of earning a return in the future. Investments can be made in a variety of assets, including stocks, bonds, real estate, and collectibles. These returns can be in the form of income, such as dividends or interest payments, or capital appreciation, which is an increase in the value of the investment.

What is Investment Management

Investment management is the professional management of assets and securities in order to meet specific investment goals for the benefit of the investors. Investment advisors are responsible for making investment decisions, managing portfolios, and providing advice to clients.

The goal of investment management is to maximize returns while minimizing risks. Investment advisors use a variety of strategies to achieve this goal, including diversification, asset allocation, and risk management.


Diversification is a risk management technique that involves investing in a variety of assets in order to reduce the overall risk of a portfolio. By diversifying across asset classes, sectors, and geographic regions, investors can minimize the impact of market volatility on their portfolio.

There is no guarantee that a diversified portfolio will enhance overall returns or outperform a non-diversified portfolio. Diversification does not protect against market risk.

Asset Allocation

Asset allocation is the process of deciding how to allocate assets among different asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, and cash. The goal of asset allocation is to create a portfolio that is well-diversified and that meets the investment objectives of the investor.

Asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.

Risk Management

Risk management is the process of identifying, assessing, and managing risk. Risk management is a critical component of investment management, as it helps investors to avoid losses and maximize returns.

Why invest?

The primary goal of investing is to generate returns that exceed the rate of inflation and provide you with additional income to help reach your financial goals. However, there are a number of other reasons to invest, including:
- Diversification: By investing in a variety of assets, you can help reduce the risk of your portfolio.
- Long-term growth: Over time, investments typically increase in value, providing you with the potential for long-term growth.
- inflation protection: Many investments offer the potential for returns that exceed the rate of inflation, which can help protect your purchasing power.
- financial confidence: Investing can provide you with the financial confidence you need in retirement or during periods of unemployment.
