Investment thinking that makes a difference

Through MLC Managed Accounts Strategies, you can access our deep asset allocation insights and portfolio construction expertise – the kind of thinking often not available through other Managed Accounts.

* Portfolios that are ready for many futures: We utilise our powerful and proprietary Investment Futures Framework to model many scenarios to help prepare our portfolios for, and respond to, a range of possible future events, investment scenarios and market conditions.

* Active management of asset allocation: Our investment experts use the insights from this analysis to adjust the asset allocation within each of the portfolios to control potential risks and capture return opportunities.

* Access to some of the world’s leading investment managers: Using our deep proprietary research we select specialist investment managers from around the world and carefully blend them in the one portfolio. Our relationships with these managers provide opportunities and insights that few others can access.

Better client engagement and communication

We share portfolio and market insights with you, so you can have informed discussions with your clients.

Our client-friendly reporting gives you a clear view of the performance of the portfolios and of the individual investments within them. Our investment insights are based on global market intelligence from our experienced investment team.

Valuable practice efficiencies supported by expertise

Our investment experts are responsible for asset allocation and manager selection within the portfolios and continuously monitor them, making changes when needed, while being mindful of transaction costs. It’s much easier than managing individual stocks, funds and other investments for clients yourself.

This reduces the compliance and administrative burden on your practice, freeing up your time so you can get on with what’s important to you; servicing clients and building your practice.

What is a managed account?

  • A managed account provides investors with access to portfolios created and monitored by a professional investment manager via model portfolios.

  • The issuer of a managed account is typically a platform provider, who implements the model portfolios on behalf of investors based on the investment manager’s advice.
