What Are MDAs?

Managed Discretionary Accounts (MDAs) offer a unique portfolio legal structure allowing advisers and/or financial institutions to trade on behalf of clients at a discretionary level on selected model portfolios. The term discretionary refers to the ability of the MDA provider to autonomously buy or sell securities (stocks, bonds, managed funds, etc) on the client’s behalf according to the previously agreed upon investment mandate of the client’s account. The PPO MDA program through our partners promotes efficiency by eliminating the need for multiple authorities in order to rebalance portfolios via tactical or strategic asset allocation. This structure allows practices and advisers to plug into and utilise the MDA designation of PPO via a service agreement.

Who Can Use An Managed Discretionary Account?
An MDA can be created for any legal structure or client type, such as an individual, a self-managed super fund, family trust or a company account.

Adviser and Client BENEFITS:

The client or entity remains the beneficial owner of all holdings within the MDA and has complete transparency over the investment. Although the agreed investment mandate allows the MDA operator discretion when managing the account, the client still has full discretion over the investment program to be implemented via the MDA.


* Simplify and scale the buying/selling process, compliance tasks and administrative work.

* Free up and shift more resources to supporting client management and value-adding activities.


* Ability to use a wide range of regulated platforms.

* Regular reporting for clients, including tax reporting.


* The client delegates the management of the portfolio to the adviser which is derived from the chosen Investment Manager. 

* The holdings are monitored and adjusted according to your investment program.


+ Ability to invest in exclusive investment funds which usually have very large minimum contributions (in excess of $500k).

+ Hassle free and active account management with instantaneous response to market conditions.

+ Platform access offering visibility of account with administrative convenience.

+ Investment flexibility with a choice of portfolios according to the client’s risk profile.

Advisers can also implement an Environment, Social, and Governance (ESG) and/or Socially Responsible Investing (SRI) overlays into the model portfolios. This allows the client to feel comfortable with their final model portfolio. MDA’s are regulated by ASIC via RG179 and meet such conditions under the Corporations Act 2001.
