What is a Managed Account?

Managed Accounts

When you're busy with your day-to-day life, you have little time for anything else, let alone time to manage your investments. Learn how a managed account program may be the simple solution to help you navigate the complex world of investing.

What is a managed account?

With thousands of investment options available, it can be difficult to create a cohesive and intelligent portfolio. One option to consider is a managed account, which is an investment account owned by you and managed by a professional money manager. With this type of account, you can select the portfolio model that most closely aligns with your individual needs, goals, and other circumstances. A professional money manager guides the portfolio model's investments and overall strategy.

Managed accounts can provide you with:
  • A trusted relationship with an investment professional
  • The ability to streamline your financial life
  • Access to fund shares typically not available to individual investors
  • Protection from the emotional and behavioral traits that lead many investors astray
