INDUSTRY PROFILE
Industry scope
The business of investment management has several facets, including the employment of professional fund managers, research (of individual assets and asset classes), dealing, settlement, marketing, internal auditing, and the preparation of reports for clients. The largest financial fund managers are firms that exhibit all the complexity their size demands. Apart from the people who bring in the money (marketers) and the people who direct investment (the fund managers), there are compliance staff (to ensure accord with legislative and regulatory constraints), internal auditors of various kinds (to examine internal systems and controls), financial controllers (to account for the institutions' own money and costs), computer experts, and "back office" employees (to track and record transactions and fund valuations for up to thousands of clients per institution).

Key problems of running such businesses


Key problems include: Revenue is directly linked to market valuations, so a major fall in asset prices causes a precipitous decline in revenues relative to costs; above-average fund performance is difficult to sustain, and clients may not be patient during times of poor performance; Successful fund managers are expensive and may be head hunted by competitors; above-average fund performance appears to be dependent on the unique skills of the fund manager; however, clients are loath to stake their investments on the ability of a few individuals- they would rather see firm-wide success, attributable to a single philosophy and internal discipline;

Financial services

Financial services are a term used to refer to the services provided by the finance industry. Financial services are also the term used to describe organizations that deal with the management of money. Banks, investment banks, insurance companies, credit card 2

A Study on portfolio management service of investors @ companies, government sponsored enterprises, and stock brokerages, are examples of the types of firms comprising the industry, which provides a variety of money and investment related services. Financial services are the largest industry (or industry category) in the world.

History of financial services United States: Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act


The term financial services became more prevalent in the United States partly as a result of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act of the late 1990s, which enabled different types of companies in the US financial services industry to merge. Critics of this act say the term financial services attempts to make the unison of these operations sound natural, ignoring the history of problems that have arisen from combining them, such as conflicts of interest and monopolization[. Others, noting that many of the restrictions abolished by the GrammLeach-Bliley Act had never existed in other countries or had been abolished earlier than in the US, say the term financial services is a natural one, in long term use, which means nothing more than its constituent word. In the USA almost every company now which previously described themselves as a bank, insurance company, or brokerage house, now describes themselves in some way as a financial services institution. Allstate Insurance, for example, now provides CDs and investment brokerage services. Bank of America offers full-featured brokerage products, while E*TRADE has expanded into offering bank accounts and loans.

Intermediation or advisory services Stock brokers (private client services) and discount brokers
Stock brokers assist people in investing, online only companies are called 'discount brokerages', companies with a branch presence are called 'full service brokerages' or 'private client services. Some of these are:

Market share
The financial services industry constitutes the largest group of companies in the world in terms of earnings and equity market cap. However it is not the largest category in terms of revenue or number of employees. It is also a slow growing and extremely fragmented industry, with the largest company (Citigroup), only having a 3 % US market share.[6] In contrast, the largest home improvement store in the US, Home Depot, has a 30 % market share, and the largest coffee house Starbucks has a 32 % market share, etc. Despite this fragmentation, financial service companies as a group are by far the most profitable in the world, and if any grew to the same market share percentages as any other retail industry, the potential profit would be large.

Portfolio (finance)
In finance, a portfolio is a collection of investments held by an institution or a private individual. In building up an investment portfolio a financial institution will typically conduct its own investment analysis, whilst a private individual may make use of the services of a financial advisor or a financial institution which offers portfolio management services. Holding a portfolio is 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.

The market portfolio


The efficient frontier is a collection of portfolios, each one optimal for a given amount of risk. A quantity known as the Sharpe ratio represents a measure of the amount of additional return (above the risk-free rate) a portfolio provides compared to the risk it carries. The portfolio on the efficient frontier with the highest Sharpe Ratio is known as the market portfolio, or sometimes the super-efficient portfolio; it is the tangency-portfolio.

Portfolio management
How should a company invest its product development resources effectively? And how should it prioritize its development projects and allocate resources among them? These are crucial issues in new product portfolio management. A company who is able to optimize its R&D investments will have success in the future. Portfolio management is a critical management challenge for three reasons: Firstly, a successful new product effort is fundamental to business success. This translates into portfolio management: the ability to select projects today that will become new product winners tomorrow. Secondly, new product development is the manifestation of the strategy of the enterprise. One of the most important ways for a company to operationalize its strategy is through the new products it develops. If new product initiatives are wrong, either the wrong projects or the wrong balance between projects, the company fails at implementing its strategy. Thirdly, portfolio management is about allocation of the companys resources. The goal of a company should be to create value for the shareholders. Technology and marketing resources simply are too limited to waste on the wrong projects. The consequences of poor portfolio management are clear: A company spills the limited resources and as a result does not give deserving projects a chance.

Portfolio Management for New Products


Portfolio Management for New Products is used to select a portfolio of new product development projects to achieve the following goals: Maximize the profitability or value of the portfolio, provide balance and support the strategy of the enterprise.

Product software development


Method engineering focuses on product software and information systems development methods. Product software is defined as software with accompanying materials which is sold in a particular market. Examples of product software are ERP software, office 13

A Study on portfolio management service of investors @ software and software development tools. This article is about portfolio management for new software product Much research has been done to discover the reason of new product success: Research (Cooper et al., 2000) has led to many reasons. Studies on why new products succeed show that there are ten critical success factors.

Nr Description 1. Seek differentiated, superior products. 2. Do your up-front homework. 3. Take the voice of the customer into account. 4. Demand a clear and early product definition. 5. Plan and resource the market launch early. 6. Build strict go/kill decision points into your process. 7. Organize around cross-functional project teams. 8. Attack from a position of strength. 9. Build an international orientation into your new product process. 10. The role and support of top management is central to success.

Product lining
Portfolio management is linked with product lining. Product lining is the marketing strategy of offering several related products individually (Ardis, M., Daley, N., Hoffman,

A Study on portfolio management service of investors @ D.M., Siy, H. and Weiss, D., 2000). A line can comprise related (software) products of various functionalities, qualities or prices (Brown sword, L. and Clements, P., 1996).

Investment managers and portfolio structures


At the heart of the investment management industry are the managers who invest and divest client investments. A certified company investment advisor should conduct an assessment of each client's individual needs and risk profile. The advisor then recommends appropriate investments.

Asset allocation
The different asset classes are stocks, bonds, real-estate, derivatives, and commodities. The exercise of allocating funds among these assets (and among individual securities within each asset class) is what investment management firms are paid for. Asset classes exhibit different market dynamics, and different interaction effects; thus, the allocation of monies among asset classes will have a significant effect on the performance of the fund. Some research suggests that allocation among asset classes has more predictive power than the choice of individual holdings in determining portfolio return.

Performance measurement
Fund performance is the acid test of fund management, and in the institutional context accurate measurement is a necessity. For that purpose, institutions measure the performance of each fund (and usually for internal purposes components of each fund) under their management, and performance is also measured by external firms that specialize in performance measurement. The leading performance measurement firms (e.g. Frank Russell in the USA) compile aggregate industry data e.g. showing how funds in general performed against given indices and peer groups over various time period.

Absolute versus relative performance


In the USA and the UK, two of the world's most sophisticated fund management markets, the tradition is for institutions to manage client money relative to benchmarks. For example, an institution believes it has done well if it has generated a return of 5% when the average manager has achieved 4%. In other markets however, e.g. Switzerland, the mentality is different and clients and fund managers focus on absolute return management,

15

A Study on portfolio management service of investors @ i.e. returns relative to cash (e.g. Swiss franc or Yen cash) where (performance) fees are payable only if the return exceeds some absolute figure (e.g. 10% per annum).

Risk-adjusted performance measurement


Performance measurement should not be reduced to the evaluation of fund returns alone, but must also integrate other fund elements that would be of interest to investors, such as the measure of risk taken. Several other aspects are also part of performance measurement: evaluating if managers have succeeded in reaching their objective, i.e. if their return was sufficiently high to reward the risks taken; how they compare to their peers; and finally whether the portfolio management results were due to luck or the managers skill. The need to answer all these questions has led to the development of more sophisticated performance measures, many of which originate in modern portfolio theory.

A Study on portfolio management service of investors @ While some models of organizational effectiveness go in and out of fashion, one that has persisted is the McKinsey 7S framework. Developed in the early 1980s by Tom Peters and Robert Waterman, two consultants working at the McKinsey & Company consulting firm, the basic premise of the model is that there are seven internal aspects of an organization that need to be aligned if it is to be successful. The 7S model can be used in a wide variety of situations where an alignment perspective is useful, for example to help you:

Improve the performance of a company. Examine the likely effects of future changes within a company. Align departments and processes during a merger or acquisition. Determine how best to implement a proposed strategy.

The McKinsey 7S model can be applied to elements of a team or a project as well. The alignment issues apply, regardless of how you decide to define the scope of the areas you study. The Seven Elements Description The Hard Ss Strategy Structure Systems The Soft Ss Style / Culture The culture of the organization, consisting of two components: Organizational Culture: the dominant values and beliefs, and norms, which develop over time and become relatively enduring features of organizational life. Management Style: more a matter of what managers do than what they say; How do a companys managers spend their time? What are they focusing attention on? Symbolism the 23 Actions a company plans in response to or anticipation of changes in its external environment. Basis for specialization and co-ordination influenced primarily by strategy and by organization size and diversity. Formal and informal procedures that support the strategy and structure.

Systems

Style

24

A Study on portfolio management service of investors @ Let's look at each of the elements specifically:

Strategy: the plan devised to maintain and build competitive advantage over the competition. Structure: the way the organization is structured and who reports to whom. Systems: the daily activities and procedures that staff members engage in to get the job done. Shared Values: called "superordinate goals" when the model was first developed, these are the core values of the company that are evidenced in the corporate culture and the general work ethic. Style: the style of leadership adopted. Staff: the employees and their general capabilities. Skills: the actual skills and competencies of the employees working for the company. Placing Shared Values in the middle of the model emphasizes that these values are central to the development of all the other critical elements. The company's structure, strategy, systems, style, staff and skills all stem from why the organization was originally created, and what it stands for. The original vision of the company was formed from the values of the creators. As the values change, so do all the other elements.

Portfolio (finance), a collection of investments held by an institution or a private individual. 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.

Corporate Portfolio Management


Corporate Portfolio Management (CPM) is an increasingly important strategic discipline focused on optimizing an organization's resource allocation. In essence, CPM requires that organizations consider the hundreds or thousands of discretionary initiatives and projects they undertake on a continual basis as part of a portfolio of investments which should be actively managed. Similar to portfolio theory used in making personal investment decisions, CPM aims to let organizations maximize financial and strategic returns while managing risk.

Security
A security is a fungible, negotiable interest representing financial value. Securities are broadly categorized into debt and equity securities. The company or other entity issuing the security is called the issuer.

Securitization
Securitization is the process of homogenizing and packaging financial instruments into a new fungible one. Acquisition, classification, collateralization, composition, pooling and distribution are functions within this process

Enterprise asset management


Enterprise asset management (EAM) means the monitoring of the physical assets of an organization to avoid a loss of profits due to break downs. Tracking covers such things as plant, equipment and facilities. "Enterprise" refers to the management of the assets across departments, locations, facilities and, in some cases, business units. By managing assets

Diversification

Diversification (finance) in finance involves spreading investments around into

many types of investments.

Diversification (demographics) is a measure of the commonality of a population.

Greater diversification denotes a wider variety of elements within that population.

Diversification (strategy) is a corporate strategy that takes the organization away

from both its current markets and products, as opposed to either market or product development.

In an attempt to achieve this, a study has been taken, focusing on the behavior of the investors and their preferences towards investment.
