Heward has prospered over the decades due to strong and dedicated team of professionals, with a diverse set of experiences and expertise.

  • A portfolio manager is a professional whose only business is to manage portfolios and advise individual clients.
  • Clients of a portfolio manager include individuals, companies, trusts and estates, foundations and retirement funds.
  • A portfolio manager offers continuous ongoing management of a client’s investment portfolio.
  • Such people are professionally trained to select securities for the portfolio which are appropriate for the client’s circumstances and requirements.
  • At the beginning of the client-manager relationship, an investment policy statement is established based on an understanding of the client’s overall financial position, tax status and risk tolerance, leading to investment objectives for the portfolio.
