Is high liquidity giving you sleepless nights? Are you the one with a high-risk appetite who wishes to have a portfolio tailored to suit your financial needs and goals?

Keep calm, and let Portfolio Management Services (PMS) handle it.

PMS is an effective tool for individuals with hordes of cash hoping to earn above-average returns from their savings.


The returns are similar to mutual funds but offer investors more breathing room as it lets you customise your portfolio, choose from a basket of instruments (debt or equity) and offers you a higher degree of transparency.

However, to go the PMS route, one must have an opening purse of at least Rs 25 lakh.

And, while there is an array of brokerages that offer PMSes, selecting the right provider for you can often be a daunting task.

PMS AIF World, a research-based wealth management firm, has shortlisted nine best-performing PMSes in its quarterly report "Investonomics" across three categories – PMSes that generated maximum returns in the last five years, low-risk high return PMSes and PMSes having high-quality midcap portfolios.

According to the report, Motilal NTDOP, ASK IEP and Narnolia 3T generated the most returns in the last five years.

To derive the best PMSes, the wealth management firm screened over 100 providers, of which only 35 PMSes made the initial cut.

Each PMS had to meet the minimum criteria of two years of performance, Asset Under Management (AUM) of at least Rs 100 crore, existence of a strong team and not taking undue risks.

The handpicked PMS were further filtered by the firms 4Ps – philosophy, portfolio, performance, and price of the products.
