Why use an SMA?

BENEFITS FOR YOUR BUSINESS

An SMA is an effective way for financial advisers to offer a direct equity portfolio solution to clients while gaining significant time, administrative and cost savings by outsourcing the investment management, custody and execution processes.

SMAs provide the benefits of direct share ownership such as transparency and portability with the addition of active management by a professional investment manager.
All portfolio administration is undertaken by the platform provider, including dividends, corporate actions, tax record- keeping and reporting. Existing investments can easily be transferred into a PPM SMA without triggering capital gains tax consequences.

  • A specialist investment manager - with a team of experienced portfolio managers and analysts, investment management is PPM’s core business
  • Active Management in Australian and Global Equities - PPM’s investment philosophy and models are time tested with our investment expertise proven over a 20 year + track record.
  • Direct access to a portfolio manager - in addition to regular market commentary and updates, the portfolio managers are always available to discuss SMA holdings. We can also schedule regular presentations to ensure that you are always aware of how we are managing your clients’ portfolios, what securities are included and why.
  • Integrated and consolidated reporting - SMA reporting can be downloaded directly from the platform provider.
  • Time savings - Partnering with PPM can free you up to grow your business by ensuring greater time can be spent focusing on clients while PPM undertakes the investment management.
  • Dedicated client services, market updates and quarterly insights to support you and your practice.
  • Accessed on leading platforms to provide easy portfolio visibility and ensure that at no time does PPM have your client’s information.

BENEFITS FOR YOUR CLIENTS

PPM SMAs are suitable for individual investors who want to be able to access PPMs professional investment management expertise via a proven investment model.

In conjunction with their financial planner or adviser, investors select an SMA investment model that is best suited to meet their investment objectives and their portfolio will be managed in accordance with that model.

Investors receive annual reporting and have online access 24/ 7 to the holdings in their portfolio.

  • Hassle-free mode of direct ownership of an equity portfolio that is professionally managed by an established investment manager.
  • Beneficial ownership means you have your own individual shareholdings. Your existing shares can be transferred into an SMA and, should circumstances change, you can transfer your individual shareholdings out of your SMA and continue to hold them.
  • No pooling of capital gains - your tax position is unaffected by other investors as each clients’ holdings have individual cost bases for each of their listed securities. This means there are no tax consequences as a result of other investors’ transactions or prior capital gains unlike a unit trust structured managed fund.
  • Professional active management of your own direct portfolio of Australian and Global Equities. PPM’s SMA capability is time tested with proven investment expertise over a 20 year + period.
  • Access to corporate opportunities, IPOs and capital raisings as well as professional advice around these corporate actions.
  • Cost effective with an inclusive fee structure via platforms and no performance fee, providing full transparency of costs
