Investors now have access to six additional separately managed
Columbia Threadneedle Investments today launched six new separately
managed account (SMA) strategies for municipal bond investors, drawing
on the firm’s 20-plus years of experience in managing tax-exempt fixed
income portfolios for high-net-worth investors.
Three of the new SMA strategies are traditional municipal bond
portfolios, with durations of short, short-intermediate and
intermediate. The remaining three are laddered strategies, also with
Columbia Short Term Municipal SMA
Columbia 1–10 Year Municipal Ladder SMA
Columbia Short-Intermediate Municipal SMA
Columbia 5–10 Year Municipal Ladder SMA
Columbia Intermediate Term Municipal SMA
Columbia 10–15 Year Municipal Ladder SMA
These SMAs are designed for individuals seeking professional portfolio
management, credit research and trading, and personalization of their
tax-exempt bond portfolio, all while maintaining direct ownership of the
underlying securities. They are available on several platforms.
“Managed accounts have dramatically enhanced the individual investor’s
ability to capitalize on customization and tax efficiency within one
portfolio,” said Dan Beckman, head of U.S. product for Columbia
Threadneedle Investments. “The introduction of these products also
allows us to better serve our intermediary partners across their full
book of business.”
Columbia Threadneedle managed $19.5 billion in municipal fixed income
securities across SMAs, institutional accounts and 18 retail mutual
funds as of December 31, 2017. The municipal team has 24 investment
professionals, with an average of 21 years of industry experience over
various market cycles. The 10 dedicated municipal research analysts on
the team have sector-specific expertise and together cover more than
2,600 municipal credits.
These six SMAs will be managed by Bill Callagy and Allyson McCann.
