Separately Managed Accounts



Nuveen Investments continues to be a leader in the separately managed accounts market. Within this market, Nuveen is known for managing high-quality, customized portfolios that seek to provide consistent, risk-adjusted returns over time.

Separately Managed Accounts Features

Investors may appreciate increased portfolio transparency, tax management capabilities and flexible portfolio tailoring.

  • A separately managed account is a private portfolio of actively managed, individual securities. By not commingling assets with other investors, clients may closely monitor the portfolio’s progress and evaluate their individual securities and asset allocations.
  • As a result of individual security ownership, separately managed accounts offer tax flexibility through tax gain/loss harvesting potentially reducing the tax impact of the portfolio. Furthermore, for financial planning purposes, individual portfolio positions may be gifted from a separately managed account. Nuveen Investments is not a tax advisor. Clients should consult their professional advisors before making any tax or investment decisions. This information should not replace a client’s consultation with a professional advisor regarding their tax situation.
  • Customization of the portfolio can be provided by choosing to avoid investing in certain securities or economic sectors, tailoring the portfolio to the investor’s distinct requirements and requests.
  • Separately Managed Accounts provide individual investors access to specialized money managers for one asset-based fee. That fee may include investment counseling, portfolio management, brokerage fees and ongoing account administration.
