Dedicated Managed Accounts (DMAs) are created to provide asset owners and large allocators with an improved investing experience. These dedicated structures provide the investor with increased transparency, robust reporting, and greater control and oversight, while reducing the cost of the underlying investments.
Enhancement of a traditional managed account structure
For institutional investors – in particular, pensions, endowments, and family offices – using managed accounts to invest in non-traditional strategies is unquestionably the most efficient solution. However, since this structure for investing presents significant operational and administrative burdens, it is prohibitively expensive and impractical for most asset owners to build and maintain the internal operational control environment, staff, technology, data infrastructure, and legal expertise necessary to effectively administer and manage a portfolio of managed accounts. This is where Gemini can partner with your organization to unlock the significant benefits managed accounts offer.
