This book, specifically designed for postgraduate students of manage-ment, finance and commerce for the course in Investment Management or Security Analysis and Portfolio Management, provides a thorough understanding of the concepts and methodologies of investment management. It begins with a sound theoretical introduction to the basic concepts of savings, investments, risk and return, portfolio and financial markets. The text then systematically explains the wide gamut of investment alternatives available to an investor and elucidates the investment markets and processes as prevalent in India.

Realizing the fact that investment is becoming more of a systematized and structured activity, the book presents a meticulous treatment of security analysis. This is closely followed by an exclusive chapter on portfolio management which encompasses all the aspects of the selection, maintenance, evaluation and revision of portfolios. The book concludes with an overview of the regulatory environment of investments.
