The Standard Investment Bank Portfolio Account endeavors to reduce the risk a client exposes his investment to. It is best considered a long-term investment because profits in the stock market are better realized in the long-term due to the business cycles experienced in the stock market. However, this investment also realizes profits in the short-term, when the opportunities in the stock market are favorable.
The client also relinquishes full discretion of the portfolio to the portfolio manager and receives quarterly reports from the date of investment.
The portfolio managers prudently make investment decisions on behalf of the clients at no extra cost. The portfolio managers invest in listed companies only within The Nairobi Stock Exchange and work to balance performance vs. risk experience in the stock market. The focus on investments is mainly in the active listed stocks which are fairly liquid to facilitate the liquidity of the fund. All the investments are done in a fund and are later allocated to the client`s individual accounts in order to ensure that the clients make a fair return on their investment in relation to the market.
At Standard Investment Bank-Portfolio Management, we work to rise above the industry benchmark.
