What is portfolio management?

When you begin your investment strategy, building and maintaining an investment portfolio offers risk management and rebalancing based on your overall investment goals. Whether you're responsible for the decision making for your own asset classes or entrust your investment decisions to a portfolio manager, it's essential to stay on top of your portfolio.

Active portfolio management is vital as your financial goals change throughout your lifetime. Early on, you may take a more aggressive approach and back off as retirement approaches later. Your investment funds are in it for the long haul, so keep an eye on your asset allocation.

Different types of portfolio management work with various risk tolerances and help make sense of the stock market. It's time to take control of your financial objectives to build long term wealth.
