In finance, a portfolio is a collection of investments held by an investment company, hedge fund, financial institution or individual.
Portfolio is the debut studio album by Grace Jones, released in 1977 by Island Records. It spawned her first big hit, " La Vie en rose".
Portfolio is the 19th studio album by Puerto Rican singer Yolandita Monge. It was released in 1990 and it includes the hits "Cantaré", "Sin Amor", and the club hit "Fuiste Un Sueño". Seven out of ten tracks in this album were composed by Venezuelan singer/songwriter Ricardo Montaner. The album's cover picture was taken by late photographer and stylist Raúl Torres and is a black and white picture, hand painted.
The song "Fuiste Un Sueño" was remixed by DJs Pablo Flores and Javier Garza and also became a massive club hit in Puerto Rico and USA. The singer filmed a music video for that song (directed by her brother in law Eric Mamery) and it won many awards for its technical and artistic values. The track "Cantaré" became an anthem due to the AIDS epidemic.
Just when everyone thought that after the success of Vivencias, Yolandita Monge would return with a similar production (an album of strong ballads), the singer surprised everyone with a light, fresh and very musical album. "Portfolio" is perhaps her richest work in musical terms and as far as arrangements are concerned. In "Portfolio" Yolandita seemed reborn, as suggested by its beautiful cover picture.
This album earned Gold status and is currently out of print in all formats. Several hits songs appear in various compilations of the singer.
