Fit

The matching of the investor's requirements and needs such as risk tolerance and growth potential preference with a specific investment. Also, how well or how poorly a regression line represents the data points it is based on. A good ‘fit’ indicates a high correlation coefficient.

Fit

To meet the needs of an investor or portfolio. That is, a security fits a portfolio if it has the acceptable amount of risk, return, meets the investor's ethical preferences, and so forth.

fit

A condition in which a security fulfills an investor's portfolio needs. For example, an investor may select a new municipal bond because that bond's maturity makes it a good fit in the investor's portfolio.
