What is SMA?
SMA is a professionally managed investment portfolio of securities directly owned by the individual investor and managed according to a specific style or discipline. It is an investment vehicle composed of stock and bond funds, individual stocks and bonds, and options on securities. With an SMA, investors benefit from direct ownership of securities, versus investing in a mutual fund or exchange-traded funds (ETFs), where your money is pooled with that of other investors. SMAs can offer customized portfolios, professional management and oversight, flexibility, transparency, diversification, tax efficiency and asset allocation and more.
The Benefits of Managed Accounts
Separately managed accounts (SMAs) are the investment vehicle of choice among many high net worth individuals seeking sophisticated investment solutions and direct ownership of securities in their accounts.
Establishing an SMA is a consultative process. SMA investors typically work with their financial professionals to establish personal objectives and investment plans. SMA owners also may have access to the portfolio manager, a service usually reserved for institutional clients. A higher level of service than other retail investment solutions is typical, and may include periodic reports summarizing account activity and performance, as well as in-person meetings, conference calls and written commentaries.
Unlike mutual funds, exchange traded funds and other pooled vehicles, SMA investors can:
- Impose reasonable investment restrictions on the management of their accounts
- Impose reasonable limits on the amount of gains or losses recognized in their accounts
