Tutorial – Portfolio Performance

Article from Issue 242/2021

Portfolio Performance helps you manage and analyze your investment portfolio.

In an age of ultra-low interest rates that make it impossible for legacy savers to build up assets, more investors are turning to securities and other riskier investments. But stocks and mutual funds will not earn money automatically. Many users prefer active oversight and management of their investment portfolio. Computer-aided portfolio analysis tools let you monitor the performance of your portfolio and make adjustments as necessary to maximize the return.

This kind of investing does not require expensive software subscriptions: All you need is a Linux PC and the Portfolio Performance [1] program. Portfolio Performance tracks your investments and even provides tools for analyzing your portfolio.

The Portfolio Performance application was created in Germany, but it supports a number of different currencies and investment types, so you can use it in other countries as well.
