Frequently Asked Questions

What are capital markets?

Capital markets are the way that investors transfer their capital to those looking to finance various projects or investments. While we primarily focus on stocks and bonds, there are many other instruments that comprise the capital markets, such as foreign exchange, commodities, and derivatives.

What is portfolio management?

Portfolio managers are professionals who manage capital market investments on behalf of individuals, companies, and governments. Their goal is to provide the highest investment returns while staying within the parameters set by these investors. Sometimes called asset managers, you will find portfolio managers working for banks, insurance companies, asset management firms, pension funds, hedge funds, and sovereign wealth funds.
