Managed Account


Managed accounts are investment portfolios managed by professional capital managers on behalf of individual investors. These portfolios are customized to suit each client’s specific needs and objectives. 

The Benefits of Investing in Managed Accounts

Investing in managed accounts offers several benefits. Firstly, it provides access to professional money managers who have extensive knowledge and experience in the financial markets. This expertise allows for more informed investment decisions and potentially higher returns. Additionally, managed accounts offer customization and flexibility, enabling investors to align their portfolios with their unique investment preferences.

Types of Managed Accounts and Their Investment Criteria

There are a few types of managed accounts available to individual investors. They include:

  1. Individually Managed Accounts. IMAs are specialized share portfolios created and maintained by a money manager for a client. Depending on his requirements and preferences, an investor can add or remove specific shares from the manager’s model portfolio. 
  2. Separately Managed Accounts. SMAs are built using sample security portfolios that are accessible through an investing business. It primarily functions as a product-based service. The model portfolio consists of several securities that the investors hold. Different models have various advantages. As a result, if customers wish to invest across many portfolios, they must create numerous individual accounts
  3. Managed Discretionary Accounts. Discretionary investment accounts, or MDAs, allow a money manager to trade securities without obtaining the investor’s consent in each instance. A discretionary agreement between the investor and the management must be signed, outlining trading restrictions for the manager to follow.
  4. Unified Managed Accounts. UMAs are investment accounts that let a money manager manage a number of different financial assets, such as bonds, mutual funds, and ETFs, in a single account. UMA integrates them all, in contrast to SMA, which requires the customer to create multiple accounts.

Our investment professionals work closely with clients to understand their preferences and recommend the most suitable managed account type.
