Portfolio Management Services in India

Portfolio Management Services

We believe that the prosperity of stock markets must reach every household. Markets are complex and extremely volatile, the information overload due to huge flow of news on various electronic mediums makes it very difficult to interpret it with reference to your portfolio. Not every investor is equipped or has time or is willing to manage their equity exposure on their own. Fighting fear and greed are not very easy for a normal investor. You need a surgeon’s skill to discard the bad and revitalise the good. A PMS fund manager performs that role for a customer’s portfolio. It is best to leave it to experts to manage the funds.

OUR Investment Philosophy

At ACMIIL, we combine the scientific approach of investing with the principles of value investing preached by world-renowned investors like Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffet to provide you the best portfolio management services in India. While the scientific approach enables us to be consistent in managing portfolio risk, the principles of value investing enables us to find stocks that are currently undervalued and have the potential to generate wealth of you. We simply do not buy stocks, we help people buy valuable businesses. Our motto is to give true intrinsic value to our valued clients who trust us with their money and time.
