Portfolio management is a hot topic and there are reports of return on investment exceeding 20-30%, but research also shows that many fail to achieve the potential returns.
The session explored the lessons from research and practical experience including:
- What is portfolio management and what’s the case for doing it?
- What is the evidence for the benefits claimed?
- What are the four key factors that make the difference in determining success?
