Asset Management

Asset management is concerned with evaluating the investment opportunities and risks of any financial asset or asset class in relation to stated investment objectives, and in implementing both strategic and tactical approaches to portfolio management.

Professionals operating in the asset management field are expected to have a detailed understanding of the security universes in which they operate, and to be able to blend quantitative tools and sound qualitative judgment to make investment decisions in both selecting and managing global investment portfolios.
