Indexing; don't compound-nest similar structs; that will become totally unworkable.
You can create an associated name array to use as id if want a way to find specific element of the array or add that ID as a field.

As per my understanding, you are looking to store objects of type ‘Portfolio’ in a way to later access them using dot indexing.
You can do so by saving the objects in a struct.
>> d = struct
>> obj1 = Portfolio;
>> obj2 = Portfolio;
>> d.p = obj1;
>> d.c = obj2;
% To access required PropertyName
>> d.p.PropertyName (or) d.c.PropertName
For more information related to ‘struct’, please refer to the following MATLAB documentation:
In case you want to store the objects in an array, you could then use numeric(array) indexing to first select the object of choice and then use dot indexing to access the required Property.
>> p = Portfolio;
>> c = Portfolio;
>> d = [p c];
% To access required PropertyName of ith object in array.
>> d(i).PropertyName
