Frequently Asked Questions
What is a Separately Managed Account?
A Separately Managed Account (SMA) is a portfolio of shares (or other securities) that is professionally managed by an investment manager. Unlike a managed fund, a SMA is not sold in units and money is not pooled together with other investors. Rather, the investor has beneficial ownership of the assets held in the portfolio purchased on their behalf. The benefits over a managed fund include beneficial ownership of shares, greater transparency and potential tax advantages.
