Portfolio Management Service (PMS): An Overview

Portfolio Management Services (PMS) is a specialized service which offers a range of specialized investment strategies so as to capitalize on the opportunities present in the market. Any form of investing requires time, knowledge, and the right mindset. It also requires constant monitoring. Under PMS, professional managers strategize to deliver consistent returns while keeping in mind your risk appetite. Every portfolio manager is skilled and has a well-defined investment philosophy and a strategy which acts as a guiding principle. PMS relieves an investor from all the administrative hassles that occur while investing. One receives periodic reports on his/her portfolio performance as well as on other aspects of investments. Investments are tracked on a continuous basis to maximize returns. In case of a PMS setup, the relationship manager defines the financial goals and advises the right product mix.

What is PMS?

When you invest in PMS, you own individual securities unlike a mutual fund investor, who owns units of the entire fund. You have the freedom and flexibility to tailor your portfolio to address personal preferences and financial goals.

This is typically a high-end product meant for high net-worth individuals (HNIs) because it needs some significant minimum investment. Portfolio management is different from investing in mutual funds. In mutual funds, the investments of various people are pooled together and the fund manager will invest it as a whole. But in portfolio management, the individuality of each client's portfolio is preserved and it will be tailor-made according to the requirements of the client. Why Portfolio Management Services? Today, the financial market is increasingly complex and managing your own portfolio will take up a lot of your time and effort.

Rule 2, clause (d) of the SEBI (portfolio managers) Rules, 1993 defines the term Portfolio as total holding of securities belonging to any person.

PMS Vs. Mutual Funds

A mutual fund is a collective pool where money is obtained from a large number of persons and invested by professionals. The fundamental difference between mutual fund and portfolio management service is that the latter involves management and implementation of your decisions. Unless you specifically ask for the same, the PMS is not going to take investment decisions for you. On the other hand, you cannot instruct your mutual fund house manager to invest your money in specific sectors only, right? This decision should be taken when you are choosing the mutual fund scheme. However, once the choices been taken, you lose all freedom of indicating your personal choice. Another significant difference between portfolio management service and mutual funds is that the former can offer customized and

individually tailored solutions. On the other hand, mutual funds offer group solutions for a large number of persons seeking a specific investment option. For example, if you wish to invest in the infrastructure sector and if you wish to spread your investment over a wide range of services, you can go in for an infrastructure related mutual fund. If you feel the existing mutual fund schemes are not good enough, there is nothing you can do about it. When you take the same decision with the help of your portfolio management service, you can choose how much money goes into which industry and how it should be managed and assessed. The management service merely acts as an agent to facilitate and execute your decisions. Another significant difference between the two solutions or services is the extent of regulation. Mutual funds have been very popular for the past five decades or more. Hence, there is well established set of regulations for mutual funds in the country. On the other hand, the idea of appointing a professional to manage ones investment is a recent entrant. The charges of different mutual fund companies and schemes have been laid out in clear detail. On the other hand, PM Services offered by banks and other financial institutions have their own separate and independent set of charges. Under certain conditions and circumstances, the portfolio management service may function just like a mutual fund. If your portfolio is not very high, your bank may combine it with portfolio of other customers in the same condition and take joint investment decisions. When this happens, the service provider will function just like a mutual fund manager. However, if you have a diverse portfolio and if you are a high net worth individual, you can insist on customized services from your bank or financial institution. This option is not available when you invest in mutual funds.

Holding a portfolio is often part of an investment and risk-limiting strategy called diversification. By owning several assets, certain types of risk (in particular specific risk) can be reduced. There are also portfolios which are aimed at taking high risks these are called concentrated portfolios. Investment management is the professional management of various securities (shares, bonds etc) and other assets (e.g. real estate), to meet specified investment goals for the benefit of the investors. Investors may be institutions (insurance companies, pension funds, corporations etc.) or private investors (both directly via investment contracts and more commonly via collective investment schemes e.g. mutual funds). The term asset management is often used to refer to the investment management of collective investments, whilst the more generic fund management may refer to all forms of institutional investment as well as investment management for private investors. Investment managers who specialize in advisory or discretionary management on behalf of (normally wealthy) private investors may often refer to their services as wealth management or portfolio management often within the context of so-called "private banking". The provision of 'investment management services' includes elements of financial analysis, asset selection, stock selection, plan implementation and ongoing monitoring of investments. Outside of the financial industry, the term "investment management" is often applied to investments other than financial instruments. Investments are often meant to include projects, brands, patents and many things other than stocks and bonds. Even in this case, the term implies that rigorous financial and economic analysis methods are used.


Need of PMS As in the current scenario the effectiveness of PMS is required. As the PMS gives investors periodically review their asset allocation across different assets as the portfolio can get skewed over a period of time. This can be largely due to appreciation / depreciation in the value of the investments. As the financial goals are diverse, the investment choices also need to be different to meet those needs. No single investment is likely to meet all the needs, so one should keep some money in bank deposits and / liquid funds to meet any urgent need for cash and keep the balance in other investment products/ schemes that would maximize the return and minimize the risk. Investment allocation can also change depending on ones risk-return profile. Objective of PMS There is the following objective which is full filled by Portfolio Management Services. 1. Safety of Fund: The investment should be preserved, not be lost, and should remain in the returnable position in cash or kind. 2. Marketability: The investment made in securities should be marketable that means, the securities must be listed and traded in stock exchange so as to avoid difficulty in their encashment. 3. Liquidity: The portfolio must consist of such securities, which could be encashed without any difficulty or involvement of time to meet urgent need for funds. Marketability ensures liquidity to the portfolio. 4. Reasonable return: The investment should earn a reasonable return to upkeep the declining value of money and be compatible with opportunity cost of the money in terms of current income in the form of interest or dividend.

5. Appreciation in Capital: The money invested in portfolio should grow and result into capital gains. 6. Tax planning: Efficient portfolio management is concerned with composite tax planning covering income tax, capital gain tax, wealth tax and gift tax. 7. Minimize risk: Risk avoidance and minimization of risk are important objective of portfolio management. Portfolio managers achieve these objectives by effective investment planning and periodical review of market, situation and economic environment affecting the financial market. PORTFOLIO CONSTRUCTION The Portfolio Construction of Rational investors wish to maximize the returns on their funds for a given level of risk. All investments possess varying degrees of risk. Returns come in the form of income, such as interest or dividends, or through growth in capital values (i.e. capital gains). The portfolio construction process can be broadly characterized as comprising the following Steps: 1. Setting objectives. The first step in building a portfolio is to determine the main objectives of the fund given the constraints (i.e. tax and liquidity requirements) that may apply. Each investor has different objectives, time horizons and attitude towards risk. Pension funds have long-term obligations and, as a result, invest for the long term. Their objective may be to maximize total returns in excess of the inflation rate. A charity might wish to generate the highest level of income while maintaining the value of its capital received from bequests. An individual may have certain liabilities and wish to match them at a future date. Assessing a clients risk tolerance can be difficult. The concepts of efficient portfolios and diversification must also be considered when setting up the investment objectives.

2. Defining policy. Once the objectives have been set, a suitable investment policy must be established. The standard procedure is for the money manager to ask clients to select their preferred mix of assets, for example equities and bonds, to provide an idea of the normal mix desired. Clients are then asked to specify limits or maximum and minimum amounts they will allow to be invested in the different assets available. The main asset classes are cash, equities, gilts/bonds and other debt instruments, derivatives, property and overseas assets. Alternative investments, such as private equity, are also growing in popularity, and will be discussed in a later chapter. Attaining the optimal asset mix over time is one of the key factors of successful investing. 3. Applying portfolio strategy. At either end of the portfolio management spectrum of strategies are active and passive strategies. An active strategy involves predicting trends and changing expectations about the likely future performance of the various asset classes and actively dealing in and out of investments to seek a better performance. For example, if the manager expects interest rates to rise, bond prices are likely to fall and so bonds should be sold, unless this expectation is already factored into bond prices. At this stage, the active fund manager should also determine the style of the portfolio. For example, will the fund invest primarily in companies with large market capitalizations, in shares of companies expected to generate high growth rates, or in companies whose valuations are low? A passive strategy usually involves buying securities to match a preselected market index. Alternatively, a portfolio can be set up to match the investors choice of tailor-made index. Passive strategies rely on diversification to reduce risk. Outperformance versus the chosen index is not expected. This strategy requires minimum input from the portfolio manager. In practice, many active funds are managed somewhere between the active and passive extremes, the core holdings of the fund being passively managed and the balance being actively managed.

4. Asset selections. Once the strategy is decided, the fund manager must select individual assets in which to invest. Usually a systematic procedure known as an investment process is established, which sets guidelines or criteria for asset selection. Active strategies require that the fund managers apply analytical skills and judgment for asset selection in order to identify undervalued assets and to try to generate superior performance. 5. Performance assessments. In order to assess the success of the fund manager, the performance of the fund is periodically measured against a pre-agreed benchmark perhaps a suitable stock exchange index or against a group of similar portfolios (peer group comparison). The portfolio construction process is continuously iterative, reflecting changes internally and externally. For example, expected movements in exchange rates may make overseas investment more attractive, leading to changes in asset allocation. Or, if many large-scale investors simultaneously decide to switch from passive to more active strategies, pressure will be put on the fund managers to offer more active funds. Poor performance of a fund may lead to modifications in individual asset holdings or, as an extreme measure; the manager of the fund may be changed altogether. Types of assets The structure of a portfolio will depend ultimately on the investors objectives and on the asset selection decision reached. The portfolio structure takes into account a range of factors, including the investors time horizon, attitude to risk, liquidity requirements, tax position and availability of investments. The main asset classes are cash, bonds and other fixed income securities, equities, derivatives, property and overseas assets.


Cash and cash instruments Cash can be invested over any desired period, to generate interest income, in a range of highly liquid or easily redeemable instruments, from simple bank deposits, negotiable certificates of deposits, commercial paper (short term corporate debt) and Treasury bills (short term government debt) to money market funds, which actively manage cash resources across a range of domestic and foreign markets. Cash is normally held over the short term pending use elsewhere (perhaps for paying claims by a non-life insurance company or for paying pensions), but may be held over the longer term as well. Returns on cash are driven by the general demand for funds in an economy, interest rates, and the expected rate of inflation. A portfolio will normally maintain at least a small proportion of its funds in cash in order to take advantage of buying opportunities. Bonds Bonds are debt instruments on which the issuer (the borrower) agrees to make interest payments at periodic intervals over the life of the bond this can be for two to thirty years or, sometimes, in perpetuity. Interest payments can be fixed or variable, the latter being linked to prevailing levels of interest rates. Bond markets are international and have grown rapidly over recent years. The bond markets are highly liquid, with many issuers of similar standing, including governments (sovereigns) and state-guaranteed organizations. Corporate bonds are bonds that are issued by companies. To assist investors and to help in the efficient pricing of bond issues, many bond issues are given ratings by specialist agencies such as Standard & Poors and Moodys. Depending on expected movements in future interest rates, the capital values of bonds fluctuate daily, providing investors with the potential for capital gains or losses. Future interest rates are driven by the likely demand/ supply of money in an economy, future inflation rates, political events and interest rates elsewhere in world markets. Investors with short-term horizons and liquidity requirements may choose to invest in bonds because of their

relatively higher return than cash and their prospects for possible capital appreciation. Long term investors, such as pension funds, may acquire bonds for the higher income and may hold them until redemption for perhaps seven or fifteen years. Because of the greater risk, long bonds (over ten years to maturity) tend to be more volatile in price than medium- and short-term bonds, and have a higher yield. Equities Equity consists of shares in a company representing the capital originally provided by shareholders. An ordinary shareholder owns a proportional share of the company and an ordinary share carries the residual risk and rewards after all liabilities and costs have been paid. Ordinary shares carry the right to receive income in the form of dividends (once declared out of distributable profits) and any residual claim on the companys assets once its liabilities have been paid in full. Preference shares are another type of share capital. They differ from ordinary shares in that the dividend on a preference share is usually fixed at some amount and does not change. Also, preference shares usually do not carry voting rights and, in the event of firm failure, preference shareholders are paid before ordinary shareholders. Returns from investing in equities are generated in the form of dividend income and capital gain arising from the ultimate sale of the shares. The level of dividends may vary from year to year, reflecting the changing profitability of a company. Similarly, the market price of a share will change from day to day to reflect all relevant available information. Although not guaranteed, equity prices generally rise over time, reflecting general economic growth, and have been found over the long term to generate growing levels of income in excess of the rate of inflation. Granted, there may be periods of time, even years, when equity prices trend downwards usually during recessionary times. The overall long-term prospect, however, for capital appreciation makes equities an attractive investment proposition for major institutional investors.

Derivatives Derivative instruments are financial assets that are derived from existing primary assets as opposed to being issued by a company or government entity. The two most popular derivatives are futures and options. The extent to which a fund may incorporate derivatives products in the fund will be specified in the fund rules and, depending on the type of fund established for the client and depending on the client, may not be allowable at all. A futures contract is an agreement in the form of a standardized contract between two counterparties to exchange an asset at a fixed price and date in the future. The underlying asset of the futures contract can be a commodity or a financial security. Each contract specifies the type and amount of the asset to be exchanged, and where it is to be delivered (usually one of a few approved locations for that particular asset). Futures contracts can be set up for the delivery of cocoa, steel, oil or coffee. Likewise, financial futures contracts can specify the delivery of foreign currency or a range of government bonds. The buyer of a futures contract takes a long position, and will make a profit if the value of the contract rises after the purchase. The seller of the futures contract takes a short position and will, in turn, make a profit if the price of the futures contract falls. When the futures contract expires, the seller of the contract is required to deliver the underlying asset to the buyer of the contract. Regarding financial futures contracts, however, in the vast majority of cases no physical delivery of the underlying asset takes place as many contracts are cash settled or closed out with the offsetting position before the expiry date. An option contract is an agreement that gives the owner the right, but not obligation, to buy or sell (depending on the type of option) a certain asset for a specified period of time. A call option gives the holder the right to buy the asset. A put option gives the holder the right to sell the asset. European options can be exercised only on the options expiry date. US options can be exercised at any time before

the contracts maturity date. Option contracts on stocks or stock indices are particularly popular. Buying an option involves paying a premium; selling an option involves receiving the premium. Options have the potential for large gains or losses, and are considered to be high-risk instruments. Sometimes, however, option contracts are used to reduce risk. For example, fund managers can use a call option to reduce risk when they own an asset. Only very specific funds are allowed to hold options. Property Property investment can be made either directly by buying properties, or indirectly by buying shares in listed property companies. Only major institutional investors with long-term time horizons and no liquidity pressures tend to make direct property investments. These institutions purchase freehold and leasehold properties as part of a property portfolio held for the long term, perhaps twenty or more years. Property sectors of interest would include prime, quality, welllocated commercial office and shop properties, modern industrial warehouses and estates, hotels, farmland and woodland. Returns are generated from annual rents and any capital gains on realization. These investments are often highly illiquid. Risk Portfolio theory also assumes that investors are basically risk adverse, meaning that, given a choice between two assets with equal rates of return they will select the asset with lower level of risk. For example, they purchased various type of insurance including life insurance, Health insurance and car insurance. The Combination of risk preference and risk aversion can be explained by an attitude toward risk that depends on the amount of money involved. A discussion of portfolio or fund management must include some thought given to the concept of risk. Any portfolio that is being developed will have certain risk constraints specified in the fund rules, very often to cater to a particular segment of investor who

possesses a particular level of risk appetite. It is, therefore, important to spend some time discussing the basic theories of quantifying the level of risk in an investment, and to attempt to explain the way in which market values of investments are determined Definition of Risk Although there is a difference in the specific definitions of risk and uncertainty, for our purpose and in most financial literature the two terms are used interchangeably. In fact, one way to define risk is the uncertainty of future outcomes. An alternative definition might be the probability of an adverse outcome. Composite risks involve the different risk as explained below:(1). Interest rate risk: It occurs due to variability cause in return by changes in level of interest rate. In long runs all interest rate move up or downwards. These changes affect the value of security. RBI, in India, is the monitoring authority which effectalises the change in interest rate. Any upward revision in interest rate affects fixed income security, which carry old lower rate of interest and thus declining market value. Thus it establishes an inverse relationship in the prize of security. TYPES RISK EXTENT Cash equivalent less vulnerable to interest rate risk Long term Bond More vulnerable to interest rate risk. (2) Purchasing power risk: It is known as inflation risk also. This risk emanates from the very fact that inflation affects the purchasing power adversely. Purchasing power risk is more in inflationary times in bonds and fixed income securities. It is desirable to invest in such securities during deflationary period or a period of decelerating inflation. Purchasing power risk is less in flexible income securities like equity shares or common stuffs where rise in dividend income offset increase in the rate of inflation and provide advantage of capital gains.


(3) Business risk: Business risk emanates from sale and purchase of securities affected by business cycles, technological change etc. Business cycle affects all the type of securities viz. there is cheerful movement in boom due to bullish trend in stock prizes where as bearish trend in depression brings downfall in the prizes of all types of securities. Flexible income securities are nearly affected than fix rate securities during depression due to decline n the market prize. (4) Financial risk: Financial risk emanates from the changes in the capital structure of the company. It is also known as leveraged risk and expressed in term of debt equity ratio. Excess of debts against equity in the capital structure indicates the company to be highly geared or highly levered. Although leveraged companys earnings per share (EPS) are more but dependence on borrowing exposes it to the risk of winding up. For, its inability to the honour its commitments towards the creditors are most important. Here it is imperative to express the relationship between risk and return, which is depicted graphically below Maximize returns, minimize risks RISK VERSUS RETURN Risk versus return is the reason why investors invest in portfolios. The ideal goal in portfolio management is to create an optimal portfolio derived from the best riskreturn opportunities available given a particular set of risk constraints. To be able to make decisions, it must be possible to quantify the degree of risk in a particular opportunity. The most common method is to use the standard deviation of the expected returns. This method measures spreads, and it is the possible returns of these spreads that provide the measure of risk. The presence of risk means that more than one outcome is possible. An investment is expected to produce different returns depending on the set of circumstances that prevail.

For example, given the following for Investment: Possible returns (xi) 30 40 50 60 70 Probability P(xi) 0.10 0.30 0.40 0.10 0.10

It is possible to calculate: 1. The expected (or average) return If the possible returns are denoted by x and the related probabilities are p(x), the expected return may be represented as x (mean) and can be calculated as:x= Possible returns Probability xi p(xi) Xi P(xi) 30 0.10 3 40 0.30 12 50 0.40 20 60 0.10 6 70 0.10 7 =48.0 Expected Return (px) = 48% 2. The Standard deviation Standard deviation == p(xi- x) 2 Also Variance (VAR) is equal to the standard deviation squared or 2 Possible Probability Deviation Deviation Product return P(xi) (xi-x) squares (xi-x)2p(xi) Xi (xi-x)2 30 0.10 -18 324 32.4

40 50 60 70

0.30 0.40 0.10 0.10

-8 2 12 22

64 4 144 484

19.2 1.6 14.4 48.4

Standard deviation () = Variance = 116 = 10.77% The standard deviation is a measure of risk, whereby the greater the standard deviation, the greater the spread, and the greater the spread, the greater the risk.

Investors prefer to invest diversified portfolio. They prefer to make the portfolio in such a pattern that the portfolio includes various kinds of securities like, long term & short term investment, equity, debt, non security forms like insurance etc. Many investors are not fully aware about various factors of investment portfolio they measure the portfolio by only two factors risk and return. Relationship of ability to bear risk and expectation of return both are found as complementary and sometimes as contradictory in case of investors thinking pattern They expect high return but not ready to take risk. There are various behavioural aspects that affect the investment decision and preference of an investors like, Age Size of family Income Occupation Future financial goals/need Risk Appetite Most of the investors prefer portfolio managers or broking firms to design portfolio for them. This is because of the ignorance of capital market. It has been found that majority of investors who wants portfolio managers to design portfolio for them are male and in the age group of 31-41 years.
