Portfolio investment which is also named Investment Portfolio refers to the company or the individuals investing in different type of assets or in the different negotiable securities at the same time.

Whether Portfolio investment is good or not to the development for the Chinese banks or what the portfolio investment conditions are in Chinese land. The researches on this topic are very rare at present.

As the Bank of China was established in 1912 and it is the most glorious bank in Chinese history, being also one of the biggest international banks with a most abundant capital strength which was evaluated by British magazine "Banker". Simultaneously it was also evaluated by the magazine Fortune as one of 500 formidable enterprises in the world. So the research chooses the Bank as the object and hoping through the case study of it, to give a macro-view of the overall Chinese financial field on the topic of investment portfolio.

The research will focus on four questions: What are the systematic risks and non-systematic risks for banks in China? Can they all be dispersed by portfolio investment? How has the Bank of China used portfolio investment and what strengths and what drawbacks has BOC's approach shown? And so on. During this period CAPM model will be applied, in order to show the result of the Bank's portfolio investment strategy and it will also explains the risk level.

At the last the dissertation the author gives the answers to the research questions and makes some suggestions for other banks in china for its portfolio investment strategy.
