Separately Managed Accounts or SMAs?
Separately Managed Accounts or SMAs are Managed Investment Schemes that are based on model portfolios with the minimum investments set at a relatively low level for a retail client. They’re an alternative to traditional superannuation funds, managed by a professional investment manager as opposed to being self-managed or managed by a traditional fund.

Insights & Ideas
Why the Managed Account Service?
Ownership: Under this Managed Account Service you retain legal and/or beneficial ownership of the Financial Products in your Managed Account. This means that you receive all income and gains from those Financial Products.
Implementation: Your Financial Adviser has discretion to make investment decisions on your behalf in accordance with the agreed parameters of the Investment Program outlined in this Contract. This ensures the time taken to implement an investment idea is not impacted by the time taken to gain your approval. This ensures your Financial Adviser can get on with the management of your investment portfolio rather than being bogged down with administration processes.
Professional investment management: You gain access to professional investment management expertise of your Financial Adviser or a Third-Party Manager appointed by your Financial Adviser in actively managing your portfolio.
Tax efficient structure: Because you retain legal and/or beneficial ownership of the investments, management of your tax position can be more efficient when compared to other forms of investment through managed funds or unit trusts. Your tax management can be more efficient because:
- you are entitled to all income and distributions arising from your investments;
- you are entitled to all tax credits (e.g. franking credits) attached to distributions;
- your tax planning can be better personalised; and
- you don’t inherit the unrealised gains and losses of other investors.
Transparency: The Managed Account Service has the advantages of lower fees, greater flexibility & transparency.
