A PMS or Portfolio management services firm manages the listed equity portfolio of an investor to generate returns. Most investors find it difficult to track the stock market on a day to day basis and manage their own portfolios, due to limitations of bandwidth, time & resources. A PMS offers a customised portfolio management for such investors with direct access to the fund manager.
PMS services are available across India and normally have offices in metros or semi metros. However, given that most services now operate online, the physical location of the service provider is not material. Tulsian PMS is India’s first e-PMS with onboarding and access to all reports being available online.

Market regulator SEBI has made it compulsory for any PMS to obtain a registration number from SEBI. However, there are services which are still not registered, investors should ensure that their service provider has a SEBI registration.
