Unified Managed Account

An actively managed portfolio that contains many different investment vehicles, such as stocks, bonds, mutual funds, ETFs, and so forth. Some portfolios are structured such that they may only contain one investment vehicle or another, requiring an investor to open multiple accounts in order to diversify. A UMA prevents this.
