Portfolio mandate

A portfolio mandate sets the parameters within which a portfolio is managed.

A fund mandate is a portfolio mandate of a collective investment vehicles. The circumstances are significantly different from portfolios that are managed for a particular client.

Where a portfolio is being managed for one client (whether an individual or an organisation) the mandate will be set by the client. This means that clients can tailor such things as ethical investment limits and risk to their own requirements.
