What We'll Cover...

Building an investment portfolio is a tough job. You have to balance the client’s financial goals with their personal financial situation and risk tolerance. This all starts with an investment policy statement (IPS). However, what does a good IPS look like? What does it consist of? And how has portfolio management changed in more recent times? Through case studies and real-world examples, we will explore how to create IPSs for clients, as well as how portfolio management has evolved over time.

  • Identify the core parts to an investment policy statement

  • Recall the difference between actual and perceived ability to take on risk

  • Recognize key findings in safe withdrawal rate (SWR) research
