About The Portfolios

Based on the hugely popular Market Matters Platinum and Income Portfolios, the Market Matters SMAs provide direct exposure to ASX listed securities and our active investment strategy, all without the hassle of day-to-day portfolio management. View our investment menu here.

Managed by James Gerrish, Portfolio Manager at Shaw and Partners and primary contributor to  Market Matters, the portfolios are built on a historically strong track-record and past returns offering significantly less volatility than the ASX200*.

This is an exciting time for investors and Market Matters, as we’ll be investing right alongside you. We’re bringing over 100+ years of market experience, as well as our commitment to risk-adjusted performance.

Whether our portfolios complement your existing approach or provide the ‘active management’ solution you’ve been looking for, we’re confident we can add significant value, while still giving you total transparency.

What are the benefits of an SMA?

A Separately Managed Account (SMA) combines the best parts of a managed fund with a direct investment. It provides you with control and direct ownership, whilst still offering convenience, flexibility and diversification, to help manage your investment risk.

At Market Matters, we believe it’s a great way for investors to build their wealth. That’s why we’re investing in our SMAs together with you.
