Discretionary Investment Management (J10) starts by looking at the investment advice process and establishing the client relationship - the aims and objectives, risk profile, investment objectives and analysing the client’s financial position.

Asset classes, investment strategies and investment wrappers are covered next, including the main asset classes – cash, bonds, equities and property, alternative investments and derivatives and investment tax wrappers. The Role of the investment manager is then considered, followed by discretionary and advisory management.

The study text moves on to look at investment funds, the economic environment, investment returns and investment risk. Portfolio theory – principles and limitations is considered, followed by measuring portfolio performance and understanding investment data. We then look at financial mathematics and sources of information – uses and limitations.
