INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT: AN INTRODUCTION


The main reason for the publication of this website, is to make you (the reader) aware of the investment world and how to manage your way around it. Investment Management on the one hand requires an analysis of the investment instruments available to the investor through the various investment grade asset classes on the one hand (this is called investment analysis) and the management of the portfolio comprising these investment instruments on the other (this is called portfolio management). Occasionally, it is also referred to as Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management.

Investment management is considered by some to be a science while others consider it an art. Of course, the remainder consider it both a science and an art. Academia has much fascination for the subject and has addressed investment management and its many parts from various points of view; and published thousands of books over the years. Others more enterprising have started providing ebooks as well. Despite this abundance of books it is but a few writer and authors who may be considered authority on the subject matter; the remaining authors would find their rightful place with regard to the specific aspect of investment management they may choose to address.

Our website addresses Investment Management in general and it’s various parts in particular which are relevant to the discerning investors seeking excellence in matters of their investments. While starting with an introduction to investment management, we take you forward through the five questions of investment management (which are indeed relevant to any endeavour you may choose to pursue). Then we work our way through the investment management process, an understanding of the investment environment and active asset allocation (which on occasion is called asset management). Thereafter we take you through investment management and the nuances of trading in the stock market, while addressing various factors (both fundamental and technical) which would otherwise influence the overall performance of the portfolio under management. Then there is risk management and investment capital management (which on occasion is called capital management). Thereafter, we address real estate investing followed by the role of options and futures and its various parts. We have briefly addressed forex trading and its relevance to present day investing. We have also provided webpages on other topics of interest.
