Writing an investment commentary is part art and part science. The content is a mix of your understanding of the markets at a macro level and your ability to tie this to what is happening within the portfolio. When it comes to commenting on portfolio details, converting statistics in a concise, simple and comprehensible format is what makes this job challenging and creative at the same time. While portfolio analysts understand the markets and the portfolio well, they could face challenges in communicating their thoughts concisely to investors. After all, creating an interesting write-up requires an optimum mix of knowledge and inspiration.

Here are some points to keep in mind when writing an investment commentary.
