Separately Managed Accounts

Separately Managed Accounts

Australia’s leading providers of Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) turn to DNR Capital to deliver investment management expertise for their SMA platforms.

Separately Managed Accounts are investment portfolios managed by DNR Capital where the investor maintains beneficial ownership of the investments.

What are the benefits of a SMA?

A SMA provides similar benefits to that of an IMA, with the benefit of a lower initial investment contribution. Having beneficial ownership of the underlying assets in the portfolio allows investors access to the following benefits:

  • Active, professional investment management of the portfolio: Ideal for investors who are comfortable with outsourcing portfolio management to a professional.
  • Transparency: Website access to portfolio reporting provides constant access to information about portfolio holdings, transactions and fees.
  • Tax efficiency: Beneficial ownership of investments allows for consideration of clients’ individual circumstances and greater tax-planning flexibility. Portfolios do not inherit capital gains as may occur with investments into managed funds.
  • Accessibility, portability and flexibility: Existing investments can easily be transferred into (or out of) a SMA and provided there is no change in beneficial ownership. it allows investors to transfer their assets from an existing investment portfolio into an SMA without triggering capital events.
  • Hassle-free ownership: All portfolio administration is undertaken by the platform provider, including corporate actions, dividends, tax record- keeping and reporting.
