Managed Account Structure
Under an SMA, each investor has direct or beneficial ownership of the individual underlying investments in their portfolio rather than taking a share of a pool of assets via issued units. The investor therefore enjoys the tax advantages that direct ownership offers relative to the unit trust structure.
Separately Managed Accounts (SMA)
An SMA is a customised securities portfolio where the assets are owned by individual investors. An investment is allocated across one or more available investment models, which will determine the portfolio allocation between securities.
The investment model is provided by an investment manager (such as Charter Hall Maxim) and will buy and sell securities in much the same way that managed funds buy and sell securities to achieve their risk and return objectives.
One way to look at separately managed accounts is as an alternative to managed funds. Investors are able to utilise the collective knowledge and intellectual property of an experienced fund manager (such as Charter Hall Maxim) and have greater transparency and flexibility by investing in securities. SMAs are non-unitised managed funds.
