Providing custom investment solutions to enhance your portfolio

What is a Separately Managed Account?

A separately managed account (SMA) is a flexible, professionally managed investment portfolio, either discretionary or non-discretionary, for public sector clients created based on unique investment objectives, risk tolerances, and cashflows. Public Trust will recommend and implement an appropriate strategy for each SMA by constructing a portfolio guided by the governing investment policy or statute.

The funds managed by Public Trust support a broad range of services that are vital to communities both large and small. Our public sector client portfolios consist of operating funds, capital reserves, insurance reserves, proceeds from the sale of bonds, and other funds with an investment horizon of up to ten years.
