Q.

I invested with Angel Broking Ltd under portfolio management and they have been investing on my behalf for last 5 years. Of late, I have noticed that the quality of stocks they buy is very poor and with consistent negative returns. My statement of account shown in their website is also not transparent. Besides alerting the general investing public, how can I square up atleast my initial investment?

(Source: http://financial-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/Portfolio+Manag ement) This can be done by us (if we have expertise) or be done by a professional.

My Perspective: According to me in portfolio mgmt as a profession, a specific sum of money (in any form cash, shares, MF, etc) is given to be managed by professionals based on a pre decided objective. This o ...more

Recently I read an article on unethical practices of PMCs.
Even when an investor specifically informed them not to invest in certain stocks, they do that and we can not do anything about it. Some times they use telecon recorded to show that we have consented to their plans.
If you have a doubt that they are not friendly anymore, better look for other sources or invest in MFs yourself (unless ur amount is unmanagably large for you)
