Ranjeet Singh, Director of London Stone Securities talks about winning strategies to manage investments amid market volatility in order to keep returns stable. Ranjeet explains the key role played by ‘derivatives', mechanisms primarily aimed to reduce investment. He also stress on the ability to adapt the portfolio according to personal trading objectives. For example, investors looking for short term trading could look at small cap companies, high beta, which are volatile but can give high returns. Long term and wise investors can look at dividends and "defensive" stocks and bigger companies. Although all information are on line, and trading has moved to mainly online platforms, Ranjeet stresses how valuable it is to seek personal advice from experienced investment managers and stockbrokers.
