Your Portfolio Manager

Your assets are managed by a team of Portfolio Managers. They constantly monitor macroeconomic developments and market conditions and adjust portfolios as necessary. If you have a question about the markets or would like to know how your investments are doing, your Portfolio Manager will be happy to make time for you. That way, you don't have to deal with your investments on a daily basis, but are always well-informed and in control.

What the mandate comprises

  • Shares 
    The Classic Mandate's portfolio includes the shares of 35 to 50 large, well-known companies worldwide. We select these shares based on a model that considers the valuation, quality, earnings momentum and 'insider' actions to be the most important indicators. We then fine-tune the portfolio to end up with the optimum selection of shares in terms of risk and return. The Portfolio Managers can also opt for investment funds that invest in high-potential themes or regions.
  • Bonds
    For a bond, the most important criterion is a good balance between risk and return, and that's why our Portfolio Managers prefer bonds with a high credit rating. Spreading risk is also an important consideration. Under this mandate, we invest in government bonds and corporate bonds with different maturities. These may be supplemented by bond funds from other categories, such as emerging markets. The selected bonds are listed in euros.
  • Other investments 
    Commodities may also form part of your portfolio. Alternative investments often react differently to market developments than shares and bonds, meaning these investments reduce the risk in your investment portfolio.
  • Liquid assets
    Finally, the Portfolio Managers may hold some of your assets in cash.
What is the investment approach?

The portfolios are actively managed according to the market conditions and in line with your risk profile. 
 
Our Portfolio Managers ensure the optimal allocation of your portfolio. They construct the portfolios based on the investment strategy defined by the Global Investment Committee. This strategy defines the preference for asset classes, regions, sectors and themes.
Risks

You should only invest with money that you have over, in addition to your buffer for unforeseen expenses. Investing can be interesting, but it also involves risks. You can lose (part of) your investment. It is good to be aware of this. Only invest in investment products that you understand. 

With Discretionary Portfolio Management, you do not make any investment choices yourself. Nevertheless, it is important that you are aware of the risks of investing. 

If you start with Discretionary Portfolio Management, it is important to first determine your risk profile. You leave the buying and selling to our experts, who will act within your risk profile.

Risk profiles

ABN AMRO uses six risk profiles for Discretionary Portfolio Management: from low risk (very defensive) to very high risk (very aggressive). Each risk profile has its own recommended allocation for the assets invested across shares, bonds, alternative investments and cash. 

Once you and your Private Banker have determined your risk profile, we can put together an appropriate investment portfolio. You will see immediately what this can mean for the return on your investments.
