Portfolio suitability

The SMA is suitable for investors with an investment horizon of five or more years, who want to invest in a portfolio of Australian companies and are seeking diversification, particularly away from the largest 20 Australian listed companies by market capitalisation. The SMA aims to provide investors with long term capital growth by investing in quality Australian shares.

  • Individual accounts - Each SMA investor has absolute entitlement to, and beneficial ownership in, the assets that make up their portfolio.
  • Transparency - The SMA allows clients to view the underlying equities that are held within their chosen model portfolio(s).
  • Transferability - With the exception of shares in National Australia Bank, existing Australian equities can be transferred into a client's model portfolio when making an initial investment, retaining beneficial ownership.
  • No inherited capital gains - An individual cost base is established for the client on the day the equities are purchased or transferred into the SMA. This means tax is only paid on realised capital gains accumulated from the day the client invested in the equities.
Risks Refer to 'Risks of investing in the SMA'.
