Portfolio Decision-Making: High Risk Versus Low Risk Strategies

This presentation will examine a case study of a small portfolio of R&D assets in which decision-makers are faced with recommending one or other portfolio that best meets the temporal goals of the organization. Not surprisingly, based on the risk tolerance and preference of decision-makers as well as an explicit definition of what constitutes a ‘successful portfolio’, a truly dominant portfolio may not exist making it difficult, but certainly not impossible, for a portfolio decision to be rendered.

  • Strategic intent.
  • Risk tolerance and risk preference.
  • Temporal goals.
  • Resource allocation by TA/BU/sector.
  • Discretionary and non-discretionary investments.
  • Actionability
