Driven by advances in technology, evolving investor needs and innovation in administrative systems, managed accounts can deliver higher performance potential, stronger compliance and substantial administrative efficiencies to financial advisers and their clients. With Zenith, you can select from a range of portfolios to suit your investment objectives, time-frames and client goals.
As one of the first multi-asset managed account providers in Australia, we’ve built a wealth of knowledge on the development and management of these investment structures. Learn more about the benefits a Zenith managed account can offer you in this short video.
At the heart of our managed account offering are our customised portfolios, which we build to suit a range of investment objectives, including those driven by responsible investment principles. We also offer a suite of public menu portfolios which are available on Australia's leading investment platforms.
Diversified portfolios incorporating RI principles which seek to reduce exposure to harmful industries and increase exposure to funds with strong ESG incorporation.
Our investment philosophy is driven by six fundamental beliefs.
Markets are inefficient and present opportunities to outperform.
Diversification leads to higher confidence of meeting objectives.
Medium-term risks, opportunities and thematics should be managed dynamically to achieve better outcomes.
Accept that markets are risky, but manage, allocate and monitor risk.
Research is key, adds value and permits evolution over time.
Be aware, prepared, patient; review, adjust and adopt according to objectives, beliefs and process.
These beliefs underpin our investment decisions and inform the process we employ to create and deliver our managed account portfolios.
You can find our managed account solutions on the following platforms.
Our business has relied on Zenith’s insights for over a decade, but 18 months ago we took the step of utilising their managed account offering. It’s sharpened the execution of changes to our client portfolios from a timing perspective, and we can see that flowing through to return consistency already. The biggest impact to date, though, has been the efficiency in our back-office functions. Less document production, less time spent on things clients don’t value, and reduced risk of making implementation mistakes allows us to spend more time on clients, both new and existing. It really has been worth the effort to make this happen.
The move to a Zenith managed account just made sense for our business. Their investment philosophy aligned very closely with ours, which made the process of building bespoke portfolios tailored to meet the needs of our clients quite seamless. The efficiencies created by the managed account structure have been very pronounced too. Portfolio monitoring and rebalancing is done by Zenith, as well as reporting and compliance, which has freed up time to work more closely with our clients to solve their challenges and determine the best path to achieve their financial goals - which is exactly why they've sought our support.
Managed by our highly experienced consulting team with an in-depth understanding of the needs of Australian financial advisers and their clients.
