Frequently asked questions

What are the benefits of a fixed income SMA versus other vehicles?

Separately managed accounts (SMAs) offer an investment approach that differs from mutual funds or ETFs. SMAs allow for individual ownership of the underlying securities in an index, which can provide advantages such as predictability of cash flows, increased customization, and tax awareness.
How do laddered portfolios work?

A constant percentage of bonds mature each year, and the proceeds are reinvested in the most attractive bonds available at the top of the ladder. We offer an online tool that simulates returns and income projections for laddered strategies in various rate environments.
How can fixed income investors benefit from Parametric’s approach to tax management?

Parametric offers year-round systematic tax-loss harvesting in our fixed income portfolios. Our process thoroughly analyzes liquidity, yield, and structure on a bond-by-bond basis, aiming to capture losses while maintaining the portfolio’s risk profile and avoiding potential wash sales.
