Many of you have heard about Portfolio management services (PMS), but do we really understand how it works? Is PMS better way of investing? Let's bust all the myths around it's and get into the reality.
Yes, if you are looking to manage your investment portfolio through professionally experienced investment managers then PMS(Portfolio Management Services) is exactly for you.
The Investment solutions provided by PMS cater to a niche segment of clients with minimum investments of 25 lakh rupees cash or a stock or can be a combination of cash and stocks. An investor in PMS will own individual securities unlike a mutual fund investor, who owns units of the scheme or a fund.
There are two types of PMS, discretionary and non-discretionary. However, majority of the asset management companies offer only discretionary PMS plan.
In discretionary PMS, the choice as well as the timings of investment rest solely with the Fund Manager. The discretionary portfolio manager manages the funds of each investor independently and investments are made at the fund manager's discretion and not on investor's discretion. So, the quality of investment is left to the knowledge levels, capability in analyzing the market and analysing the value risk of the Fund manager. It is like ordering a dish from the menu of a restaurant.
In non-discretionary PMS, the fund manager will only suggest the investment ideas. The decision on timings and choice of the investment rests solely with the investor. However, the execution of trade is done by the fund manager. It is like ordering your favorite pizza. You select the base, toppings, extra cheese and so on. The result is the exact output of your choice.
