Individually Managed Accounts (IMAs) is an innovative new service on the Standard Life Platform that allows for the automation of tax planning and portfolio management. IMAs work seamlessly with FE Investment’s award-winning discretionary managed portfolios and includes three valuable tools that integrate into your advice process.
This service allows you to provide a more cost-effective and flexible investment service that you can deliver at scale.
The investment solution
FE Investments Mosaic Portfolios
Available with our Mosaic Portfolios, the IMAs combines some of the advantages of bespoke discretionary management within a managed portfolio service that’s been designed specifically for clients with more complex requirements. The perfect combination for those with needs that are not met through a traditional managed portfolio service.
Designed as a cost-effective alternative to bespoke investment management, the Mosaic Portfolios deliver a wide selection of 25 – 45 holdings, reducing concentration risk and making them the ideal choice for clients with larger accounts.
- 15 portfolios, with five risk levels spanning three time horizons
- Minimised concentration risk via broad selection of 25-45 holdings
- Advanced investment strategy with multiple sub-portfolios in each asset class
- Detailed reporting for clients interested in the ongoing portfolio management
- Cost effective alternative to bespoke investment management

Tools on the Standard Life platform
The IMAs are a new technology on the Standard Life Wrap platform that allows financial planners and investment managers to work together and deliver individual client outcomes in a scalable and efficient way.
Auto ISA is an automated process that ensures your clients are using their ISA allowance at the start of each tax year. It has the potential to save you both time and cost as you are relieved from the administration that it normally requires. GIAs and ISAs are managed as one portfolio in order to manage tax more efficiently.
CGT Allowance Harvesting
Capital Gains Tax (CGT) allowance harvesting automates the management of capital gains within our managed portfolio service. The process aims to use your clients’ unused allowance before the end of the tax year, and any remaining gains are pushed into the new tax year. This allows you to provide a higher level of service and improved tax efficiencies for your clients, without extra admin. Client outcomes are improved by offering a service that promotes the efficient use of tax allowances, unlike a standard managed portfolio service.
The Exclusions service provide you with the ability to cut out funds that you or your client don't want in the investment portfolio, providing you with flexible solutions that are able to take account of individual preferences or restrictions.

The price and value of investments and their income fluctuates. You may get back less than you originally invested. The tax treatment depends on the individual circumstances of each investor and may be subject to change in the future.
