Investors with shorter time horizons generally favor more liquid and less risky investments because losses are harder to overcome during a short time frame. 00 Because of life expectancies, our 25-year-old investor has a longer investment time horizon than our 65-year-old investor. But, as discussed earlier, this does not mean the 65-year-old should put all her money in short-term CDs; she needs the inflation protection that long-term investments, such as common stock, can provide. Still, because of the differing time horizons, the 25-year-old will probably have a greater proportion of his portfolio in equities, including stocks in growth companies, small firms, or international firms, than the 65-year-old.
Standards for Evaluating Portfolio Performance The policy statement also assists in judging the performance of the portfolio manager. Performance cannot be judged without an objective standard; the policy statement provides that objective standard. The portfolio’s performance should be compared to guidelines specified in the policy statement, not on the portfolio’s overall return. For example, if an investor has a low tolerance for risky investments, the portfolio manager should not be fired simply because the portfolio does not perform as well as the risky S&P 500 stock index.
This involves constructing a portfolio that will minimize the investor’s risks while meeting the needs specified in the policy statement. Financial theory frequently assists portfolio construction, as is discussed in Part 2. Some of the practical aspects of selecting investments for inclusion in a portfolio are discussed in Part 4 and Part 5. The fourth step in the portfolio management process is the continual monitoring of the investor’s needs and capital market conditions and, when necessary, updating the policy statement.
