What is a managed account?

A managed account is an investment portfolio that is overseen by a professional investment manager, who looks after the day-to-day investment decisions and implements the investment strategy as determined by your financial adviser.

The structure of managed accounts allows you to see exactly how your money is invested at any time by providing you and your financial adviser full visibility of the underlying assets in your portfolio, including any related transactions, performance and fees, a feature which is generally not readily available with managed funds. Managed accounts provide several benefits not available through managed funds.

Managed account benefits

  • Better focus on maximising investment outcomes and understanding

  • Quick implementation of ideas

  • Helping improve portfolio outcomes

  • Clear and concise reports

  • Beneficial ownership of listed securities

  • Professional portfolio management based on your investment needs

  • Around the clock access

Risks associated with Managed Accounts

You should be aware of the risks when investing. No matter how skilled the investment managers, or how strong the performance of the Model Portfolio is, there is always a chance you could receive less than you invested.

The future performance of any specific Model Portfolio offered through this product is not guaranteed.
