How to Profit from a Share Portfolio

A well-crafted portfolio is the most effective and proven way of reducing risks while enjoying the high returns that shares can offer.

Many investors, however, simply pick shares that catch their fancy at random, or those that have been recommended in the financial press without any thought of creating a suitable, balanced portfolio. They then cling on to their purchases irrespective of whether their investment needs have changed or whether the companies they chose still meet their investment objectives.

Step by step, this book explains in simple terms how to build and manage a share portfolio:

  • The importance and benefits of a portfolio

  • How to build a suitable share portfolio

  • Deciding what you want from your portfolio — income versus growth

  • Why you must hold a diversified portfolio

  • How to select the right shares for your portfolio

  • How big a portfolio should you hold

  • How to monitor and manage your portfolio

  • How to periodically rebalance your portfolio.

Written in a clear, easy to follow style — and packed with real examples — this book will benefit both beginners and the more experienced investors alike to build and profit from a share portfolio.
