A STUDY OF CUNSTRUCTION OF OPTIMUM PORTFOLIO AT
VISHAL INVESTMENT, BANGALORE
Portfolio is a combination of securities such as stocks, bonds and money market instruments. The
process of blending together the broad assets classes so as to obtain optimum return with
minimum risk is called portfolio Construction. Diversification of investment helps to spread risk
over many assets. A diversification of securities gives the assurance of obtaining the anticipated
return on the portfolio. In a diversified portfolio, some securities may not perform as expected
but others may exceed the expectation and making the actual return of the portfolio reasonably
close to the anticipated one.
Rachel Campbell et.al (2001), says about optimal portfolio selection is that a portfolio
selections a model which allocates financial assets by maximizing expected return subject to the
constraint that the expected maximum loss should meet the Value-at-Risk limits set by the risk
Connor (2011), in his study compared the financial performance of portfolio of 90 high
sustainability companies (who can’t adopt ESG value without sacrificing shareholder wealth) for
an 18 year period till 2010 end. He observed that an investment of $1 in 1993 in the former
portfolio would grow to $22.60 by end of 2010, whereas the same would grow to only $15.4 in
latter case. This finding suggests that companies can adopt ESG value without sacrificing

Statman (2000), Kreander et al. (2005), Asset management working group (2006), and
Connor (2011) showed superior performance by ethical portfolios while Renneboog et al
(2007a) and Norup and Gottlieb (2011) showed that ethical funds/portfolios underperformance in
comparison to the conventional fund/benchmarks. Again, Bauer et al (2009) and (2007) fond no
significant difference in their performance as compared to bench marks.

randomly select conventional fund of similar net assets to investigate difference in characteristic
