Separately Managed Account (SMA)

a contractual investment arrangement whereby an investor deposits certain assets into a separate investment account and gives an investment manager discretion to invest those assets in a certain manner. An SMA investor owns the invested assets directly in its own name, in contrast to the indirect ownership of assets that results from investment through a Hedge Fund or Mutual Fund.
