Deutsche Asset Management enhances Municipal Bond Platform with SMA launch


Deutsche Asset Management (Deutsche AM) has expanded its municipal bond platform with the launch of separately managed account (SMA) strategies for use in third-party wrap-fee programs.

The new offerings will be made available to high net worth clients and combine access to the investment expertise of Deutsche AM’s municipal bond portfolio managers with the strategic investment benefits of an SMA.
Investors will have the ability to reasonably customise a portfolio along various investment preferences and the ability to more directly manage taxable events through the ownership of the underlying bonds. In addition, investors can also access an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) framework overlay option.
“As a major municipal bond asset manager, we are always looking for ways to enhance our existing platform,” says Greg Staples, Co-Head of Fixed Income, Americas. “Our goal is to bring innovative solutions to our clients that help accomplish their bond investing strategies through products that best fit their needs. Through the ESG framework, our new SMA strategies allow our clients to fulfill their financial objectives as well as their stewardship goals.”
Clients have come to know Deutsche Asset Management as a trusted partner to identify opportunities through decades of changing economic and market conditions. Deutsche AM’s integrated global platform harnesses a combination of expertise, perspectives and cross-cultural talent to create powerful fixed-income, equity and alternative strategies. Whether through mutual funds, exchange-traded products, customised institutional mandates, structured solutions, or SMAs, Deutsche AM is driven to serve each client’s specific risk, return and liquidity challenges.
