Ralton, UBS, Platypus and Bennelong selected as active investment managers for SMA portfolios
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank platformTrinity3 has revealed its investment manager line up for its separately managed account (SMA) model portfolios.
The index portfolios will be managed by Bendigo Bank subsidiary, Sandhurst Trustees. The actively managed portfolios will draw upon the capabilities of Ralton Asset Management, UBS, Platypus and Bennelong.
Trinity3 spokesperson, Gillian Carless, said that when it comes to selecting investment managers for model portfolios in separately managed accounts, the focus is absolutely on investment outcomes. “We wanted access to highly experienced investment managers, with impressive track records, operating in environments that we believe are conducive to producing the best possible investment outcomes,” she said.
“Some of the managers in our line-up have previously managed only large mandates, so we are really pleased to offer an outstanding combination of the highest calibre investment professionals backed by stellar organisations to investors with $25,000 to invest rather than $25 million.”
Ms Carless said; “The platform will deliver transacting efficiencies, customising portfolios, personalising tax outcomes, reporting and providing all the flexibility investors expect from a new generation platform.”
