Dimensional’s O’Reilly On The Advantages Of SMAs

Gerard O’Reilly, PhD, Co-CEO & CIO, and Mark Gochnour, CFA, Head of Global Client Services & Vice President at Dimensional Fund Advisors LP discuss the customization and tax benefits of SMAs. 

Separately managed accounts (SMAs) enable investors to tailor investment strategies to better fit their financial goals, preferences, and values. Direct indexing has become a popular way to combine broad diversification with personalized investing. But trying to closely track an index can limit an SMA’s return potential.

By applying a systematic yet flexible daily investment approach, SMAs can go beyond indexing and target higher expected returns in a reliable and low cost manner. Moreover, SMAs that apply a multifaceted tax management approach can go beyond tax loss harvesting to provide investors with greater tax efficiency.
