An investor managing one's own investments must understand the various risk generating aspects of one's portfolio and the contribution they are targeted to make with respect to the return of the portfolio. The investment performance risk and return objectives of a portfolio should be viewed within a defined timeframe that is extended on an ongoing basis.
When employing a money manager to manage one's investments, it is equally important that the risk elements to be present and employed in the management of a portfolio be well defined and understood, addressed in guidelines, be consistent with the investor's portfolio performance objectives and reflect a portfolio's targeted performance or performance benchmark(s).
One of the elements of investment performance risk is the presence of leverage. The use of leverage can be an important means of enhancing the return of a portfolio, but it can also dramatically increase the risk of a portfolio. Leverage is frequently a misunderstood investment management concept and this presentation will provide an in depth look of leverage with respect to the understanding of leverage, its identification and measurement and the methods by which leverage can be created.
