A decent portfolio strategy helps the investors increase the worth of their respective portfolios by a considerable extent. There are certain fundamentals that are followed by portfolio analysts in order to help their clients derive the maximum benefits from their investment portfolios.
They could be enumerated as follows:
Lending support to the implementation of portfolio strategies
Comprehending the competitive set of each and every strategy
Recognizing the optimal portfolios
Characterizing and quantifying the opportunities for incremental portfolio revenue versus cannibalization
Providing competitive set analysis
It is important to recognize and select the best products as that is the most important and primary step of making portfolio strategies. The leading portfolio strategy service providers are able to help their clients assess the share capture that could be obtained from the competitive products. They can also help provide cannibalization from the remaining products.
Quite often the companies need to make choices between portfolios that have great potential for development and ones that have a group of products, which dominate their respective category and can also purchase the remaining sales resources.
The business companies need, at times, to choose between two portfolios, which may be enumerated as below:
Portfolios that contain products which are similar enough to allow companies to purchase industry expertise and company resources across more than one product Avoiding cannibalization as products are so similar that they compete primarily with each other rather than with the products of the competing manufacturers.
Characterization of Portfolio Strategies
Characterization is an important aspect of portfolio strategies. It helps the business companies to decide on the various ways of reducing cannibalization. The most important consideration of this method is the manipulation of the assumed positives of the portfolios.
Yet another important use of the portfolio strategy is the optimization of the product portfolio. The basic idea behind this strategy is to give rise to more incremental revenue and minimize the various costs involved.
