Portfolio managers are responsible for profitably investing people’s money. They could work for corporations or individuals. Portfolio managers spend a large part of their days studying financial markets and current events. They work closely with analysts and debate the implications of market developments and current events on possible investments. Once they have gathered the information they need, they then take decisions about buying and selling securities. They share their research and insight with investors along with a suggested course of action. They are responsible for not just bringing in investments but also for managing these investments through constant monitoring and suitable action in terms of holding or selling.
