INTRODUCTION TO PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT SERVICES [PMS]

You can invest in stock markets primarily in two manners.  

  • The self-approach wherein you call the shots

  • The professional approach where you invest thru mutual fund or a PMS account

Mutual Fund: Mutual Fund will be ideal for you if you are a small investor. There are many mutual funds catering specifically to various asset classes or industries. There are also some balanced schemes which invest both in equity or debt.

 

Portfolio Management Services: If your investments are beyond INR 25 lakhs, investing thru a PMS account will be a better option for you. A customized management of your funds will give you the advantage to investing in sync with what suits your expectations. Your systematic risks in PMS account is to a large extent reduced because of careful selection of stocks, better timings, active management, balanced investing approach and so forth.

 

Direct Investments: If you are a small investor and aiming at very long-term investments. You should only consider direct investments provided you have knowledge, passion, time and wherewithal to identify dark horses.

PMS involves experts in investment decision making which improves return potential and restricts flip side risks significantly. Additional benefits also include handling day to day affairs and book keeping on your behalf.

Contrary to popular notion, PMS isn’t expensive. Costs of maintaining PMS and mutual funds are almost the same.
