Digital Assets SMA Providers
An SMA is a portfolio created for a single investor, and managed by a financial advisor or investment firm. Unlike mutual funds and ETFs, where investors own shares of the fund instead of the underlying securities, the securities in an SMA are owned directly by the investor. SMAs thus offer customization not available with mutual funds or ETFs, and thus can more closely reflect an investor’s objectives, risk tolerance and other needs. Digital assets held in an SMA are placed with a qualified custodian.
