Scanlan, CFA Barclays Global Investors San Francisco, California Jan R. Squires, CFA CFA Institute Hong Kong 1. INTRODUCTION In the context of portfolio management, the terms private client, high-net-worth investor, and individual investor are used virtually interchangeably to reference the unique challenges of managing personal or family assets. Although a more precise definition of the individual investor is elusive, the basic need to properly manage one’s financial affairs is self-evident, and the precedent for seeking professional management is well established.

A multiperiod perspective can address the liquidity and tax considerations that arise from rebalancing portfolios over time, as well as serial correlation (long- and short-term dependencies) in returns, but is more costly to implement. This chapter focuses on the creation of an IPS in the planning step and thereby lays the groundwork for the discussion in later chapters of tailoring the IPS to individual and institutional investors’ needs. The execution and feedback steps in the portfolio management process are as important as the planning step and will receive more attention in subsequent chapters.

But verbal distinctions are not the most important point. The conduct of a portfolio manager affects the well-being of clients and many other people.
