Q.

What is the difference between 'portfolio management' and mutual fund in the way it appears to investors? Does one of them give higher returns? Do all these companies like 'Kotak Securities' and 'India infoline' who offer this 'portfolio management' do something better than what mutual funds can do? Is anyone using portfolio management services? what is their opinion about it? Can you please explain as to how portfolio management works? Is it meant only for HNI?
