  3. 3. Executive Summary: The Separately Managed Account Business Drive for Standards The current quest for standards in the separately managed accounts industry should be viewed in its historical context. Most of the Investment Managers who became involved in the business in its early stage of development were Institutional Asset Managers who were interested in expanding their product distribution to the retail networks of the major Broker Dealers. The investment management business institutional operating model was the one most Investment Managers were familiar with. It depended on tri-party trade communications between broker- dealers, institutional Investment Managers and custodians. DTC was the industry utility for critical communications. The standard was electronic trade communications, interface, procedures and agreements (ad-hoc). However, Institutional Managers were more accustomed to low volume levels of new accounts, terminations, external cash flows and client driven portfolio activity. They had primarily tax- exempt clients, highly customized reporting, sophisticated institutional consultants and distribution channels. Separate Account Sponsors adopted the role of consultants in addition to their traditional roles as broker-dealers and custodians. There were no standard communications between Investment Managers and Sponsors. There was no industry utility. The all important account life cycle communications were delivered on paper, fax or electronically, depending on the Sponsor. In addition, many Sponsors required Investment Managers to use Sponsor specific trading and allocation generation platforms. The Sponsors developed systems to accommodate multiple Investment Managers in multiple investment styles. Many spent considerable resources on trade entry, portfolio management and allocation generation platforms to support each of the Investment Managers. In many cases these systems were redundant to each other. They spent additional significant resources, collectively, on Manager training, interface maintenance, telecommunications, systems development and the IT infrastructure to support each of the Investment Managers. Though the industry has been relatively free of major trading errors, they have had to manage market exposure when their systems did not perform reliably. The typical Investment Manager involved in the Separately Managed Account business now has adapted to this infrastructure. Each participates in multiple Sponsor programs and in multiple investment styles. They support multiple trading and allocation generation front-ends. The resulting staffing issues are significant. The learning curve for new staff, coverage for vacations or illness and turnover are challenges made exponentially more difficult by the use of these multiple front-ends. Trade order management and best execution standards must be managed with extreme care. The need to eliminate operational drain created by the redundant development and maintenance of interfaces is clear. A central standard processing flow will reduce costs and operational risks, thereby improving the quality of services. By identifying high traffic communications as well as the most critical communications between industry participants related to operations will allow us to reduce these redundancies. The communications should be categorized and content must be standardized for fields of Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute. All Rights Reserved 1

Several months ago, the Money Management Institute Technology and Operations sub- committee established a working group to focus on the development of standard data communications between Sponsors and Investment Managers. After many long meetings and telephone conference calls, the first draft of the MMI’s Standards for Data Communications was produced. The dedication of the volunteers who have worked on this project and continue to work on the development of the many additional data communication standards is extraordinary. The spirit of cooperation and selfless commitment of time and effort in this endeavor is truly remarkable. We have attached a list of the active participants in this project. There have been many leaders among the group who worked on several of these important documents. To mention a few would slight the team that we have assembled that has shown an outstanding resolve and persistence to produce the results. We list the group in its entirety below.

As a practical matter, we would expect Sponsors and Investment Managers to establish realistic timetables for transition to the standards over time. We believe the major vendors/Sponsors/Investment Managers will adopt these standards to provide improved services to clients. As standards are adopted, we anticipate middleware infrastructures to improve the operational efficiencies of all participants. Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute. All Rights Reserved 2
  5. 5. Introduction The purpose of this document is to describe, diagram and define a standard set of operating and communications process flows and message specifications for the Managed Accounts industry. By defining and adopting these standards the Separately Managed Accounts (SMA) industry could make significant progress toward improving overall operational efficiency. This document will serve as the SMA industry repository for current and future standards. Initially, the industry has elected to standardize the processes below because these are highly manual and prone to risk and errors. • New Account Set-Up • Account Initiation • Funding Notification • Authorization to Trade • Account Maintenance • Deposit Funding • Withdrawals • Account Termination Additional processes have been identified as future standardization targets, and will be included in this document along with process flows and detailed specifications. Those identified are: • Account Maintenance • Address changes • Broker changes • Custodian changes • Tax trading guidelines • Account title changes • Client Account Number changes • Short position or debit cash notifications • Client guideline and restriction changes • Fee calculation and processing information • Performance reporting • Corporate actions • Proxy information • Trading • Buy and Sell orders • Indications of interest • Trade allocations • Step out notifications • Partial fill shares • All price executions • Error reporting, processing and correction communications • Reconciliation Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute.

  6. 6. I. Separately Managed Accounts Industry Separately Managed Accounts (SMAs) evolved in the early 1970s from the defined benefit pension funds market. E.F. Hutton formally introduced the first SMA in 1976 and was the sole provider for the next 10 years. The structure in the early years was relatively simple. Sponsors acted as the introducing intermediary, custodian and trade executor for the investor. Investment Managers (IMs) interacted directly with the client and provided asset management services in return for a fee negotiated with the investor. In 1987, E.F. Hutton launched the Select Managers program and assumed fiduciary, record keeping and reporting responsibility. Fees and account minimums were standardized, and the traditional consulting process assumed a greater significance. This remains the predominant structure of the SMA business today. The industry had approximately $415B1 in assets under management (AUM) at the end of the first quarter, 2002. This includes all SMAs. The industry is in a state of rapid growth and has experienced a compound annual growth rate of 21% for the 6-year period ending December 31, 2001. Financial Research Corporation (FRC) projects that assets held in separately managed accounts will approach $1 trillion by the year 2005 and total nearly $3 trillion by the year 2011. The total number of individual accounts, estimated at 2 million in 2002, will increase to 4.2 million in 2005, 7.9 million in 2008, and 12.5 million in 2011. The SMA industry is faced with numerous challenges in the technology and operations area. One key area of concern is the potential scalability of the business due to a lack of standardized protocols and processes. Achieving standardization is directly correlated to the level of connectivity and the free flow of data that exists between the Sponsors and IMs that serve the industry. The current state of connectivity in the SMA world does not allow for the efficient flow of this data as reflected in a recent study by FRC. In the study, SMA Investment Managers identified the current fractured operational environment as the single greatest challenge they face today, and the quantitative research concurs by showing that operations personnel/resources increase in direct correlation to a firms' SMA assets and SMA accounts under management.2 While the industry is growing rapidly, it is relatively small compared to other financial products. SMA assets are dwarfed by the mutual fund industry that has over $6.93 trillion in total assets under management. From an operational perspective, the current state of the SMA industry may be likened to the mutual fund industry some twenty years ago. At that time, the fund industry defined the standardized operational procedures and protocols that made it scalable and profitable and allowed it to become the investment product of choice for individual investors. Many believe that SMAs have reached a similar critical point in their life cycle. A. Participants Within the industry there are six categories of ‘participants’ that are described below. While these descriptions attempt to neatly categorize each participant, in practice there are actually many exceptions. For example, Sponsors are also often IMs for both their own and other 1 Money Management Institute, May 21, 2002 2 Best Practices in the Separately Managed Account Industry, Financial Research Corporation, 2001 3 2002 Mutual Fund Fact Book, Investment Company Institute, May 2002, pg. 23.

  7. 7. Sponsors’ SMA products. This blurring of roles is likely to increase substantially in both the short and long term. 1. Investors There is a wide range of investor types with an increasing range in wealth. SMA programs now range in initial account size from as low as $10,000 all the way up to $5 million (or more) with an average size of about $300,000. Investor types range from high net worth (HNW) investors through pension plan participants. 2. The Financial Consultants / Advisors (FC) Financial Consultants / Advisors (FCs or FAs as they are commonly known) are the primary distribution for the SMA industry. Usually they serve as the first point of contact for the investors and act as the intermediary between the Sponsor. In most cases FCs are Brokers that are either in-house (on the payroll) at the Sponsor or are contracted as independent representatives. In their advisor / consultant role, Brokers are compensated with advisory fees rather than sales commissions. The duties of an FC include: • Determine client objectives • Create Profile • Provide investment suggestions and financial planning advice in alignment with the client’s objectives. 3. Sponsor Sponsors establish relationships with Custodians and select Investment Managers (IMs) by their investment styles. They perform ongoing due diligence to determine the IM’s participation level in their programs. In most cases, Sponsors create separately managed account programs as enhanced services for their clients, contracting independently with each as a co-advisor with fiduciary responsibility. In some cases Sponsors create the framework for the SMA programs as a service for either clearing firms or independent financial consultants. Additionally, Sponsors support FCs with profiling tools that facilitate the creation and review of the client’s investment objectives, and IM search databases for the IM selection process. In addition, Sponsors review the client’s investment objectives for suitability, execute trade orders from the Sponsor’s selected IMs, and handle the client communications and changes in each account. They create all client reports and generate performance on the individual styles. The Sponsor universe covers the wirehouses, regional firms, Independent Broker/Dealers (IBDs), insurance companies and banks. 4. Investment Manager Investment Managers (IMs) are the providers or manufacturers of the investment process for the client. To participate in a Sponsor’s program, an IM will enter into separate “master” agreements for each program and are subject to annual due diligence review meetings from the Sponsor. Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute. All Rights Reserved 5
  8. 8. IMs may act as sub advisors, primarily with each client selecting them as manager. In this capacity they serve as co-fiduciary with the Sponsor, managing client accounts in accordance with the investment policy stated in the master agreement. They exercise full investment discretion with respect to each individual account. The restrictions and individual client cash flows are managed accordingly on a per account basis. Trades are created and blocked (combined) by the IM with execution primarily to the Sponsor’s trade desk in lieu of any commissions (as SMAs are zero commission). The IM universe includes insurance companies, mutual fund managers and boutique firms. 5. Custodians Custodians are designated by the Sponsor to settle all transactions, and update client records with respect to changes in stock or bonds, cash flows, corporate reorganizations. Custodian fees are generally a percentage of assets as the SMA world is mostly zero commission based. The Custodians are usually the same firms as the Sponsors. 6. Vendor and Outsourcer Service Providers Service Providers accommodate the workflow and services that the parties require for SMAs with systems technology and applications. Some of the services include portfolio accounting applications such as complete database, trade order, performance generation and report writing capabilities including full security pricing, sector coding and security restriction functionality. Portfolio accounting applications are primarily servicing IMs, but are also utilized by Sponsors. Most vendors and outsourcers have interface capabilities that enable the same portfolio accounting systems to maintain a “dual” or matching set of books between the Custodian / Sponsor and IM on an automated basis. Furthermore, there are separate software applications that interface with the portfolio accounting systems such as: composite reporting systems 4, client relationship management systems5, tax efficient trading6 and automated workflow applications7. Others have entered the market and offer alternatives. However, at this time none of those vendors have achieved significant market share among IMs or Sponsors. B. Products The SMA account is composed of securities (which could include stocks, bonds, mutual funds, commodities, etc.) representing a particular target investment style, for example, large cap growth or small cap value, that is selected based on a particular investor’s profile or financial goals. This target portfolio is then managed according the investment style and securities are bought and sold in the account consistent with that style. The fee for the SMA account is usually 4 CAPS 5 Saratoga and Siebel 6 Northfield 7 Imaging Solutions Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute. All Rights Reserved 6
  9. 9. based on a fixed percentage in the range of 1% to 3% but which may vary based on assets, complexity of investment style, etc. The advantage of this fee arrangement for the investor is that it is defined at the inception of the account. The number of products and ‘flavors’ of the SMA account is increasing as IMs and Sponsors look to differentiate their products. Some of the major SMA products include the following: 1. Separately Managed Accounts a. Retail The retail SMA account is the traditional account sold by FCs and administered by the wirehouses. The investment styles are well-defined, e.g. large cap, small cap, etc. and based on an investor’s risk profile. The primary investors are individuals and account minimums begin as low as $50,000. b. Institutional The Institutional SMA account is sold by IMs or the wirehouses and is geared toward corporations, pension plans, etc. Often the account mirrors a particular mutual fund or hedge fund and is managed by that fund’s manager. The primary ‘buyer’ of these accounts are corporate investors or pension plan administrators and the minimums exceed $1 million. c. Mutual Fund Wrap The mutual fund wrap is an SMA account that only uses mutual funds as the investment vehicle. The mutual fund wrap is sold by mutual fund companies, (often using their own mutual fund products) financial advisors and registered investment advisors and brokers. The investor profile is the same as for the Retail SMA account. 2. On-line Managed Accounts The ‘on-line’ SMA account is a product that allows an investor to build their own target portfolio that includes stocks, mutual funds and bonds8. Usually little or no advice is provided and fees for brokerage and custody are bundled into the account charge. This type of account has gained much publicity but very limited actual accounts or assets. 3. Tax Aware Accounts The ‘tax aware’ SMA is designed to consider an investor’s tax bracket and investment goals and utilize and time trading in order to limit tax exposure. This capability is geared toward ‘high-end’ SMA investors (above $250,000) and is becoming a very popular product. 4. Multi-Strategy Portfolios ‘MSPs’ or ‘MDAs’ are accounts that integrate multiple investment styles into a single account or strategy, providing portfolio diversity (and presumably less market risk). These SMAs usually have the Sponsor act as the ‘manager of managers’, selecting investment styles, IMs and allocations to those IMs for a single account. Minimums for these accounts usually start at $100k and are targeted at the ‘high-end’ SMA investor. As the SMA industry adds participants and programs, the number of style categories will continue to increase over what is described here. As the number and type of categories increase, the variance in operations and processing will also become more challenging to manage. The 8 FOLIO fn Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute.

Because there is no standard communication protocol, there is little efficiency. There are a large number of one-off interfaces created in order to attain the current fragmented level of automation. Considerable resources (both human and financial) are spent on continuous re- designing and re-engineering business processes in an attempt to be more fully automated and reduce errors.

  12. 12. II. Business Interactions The purpose of this section is to describe the business interaction between participants for particular processes. The primary assumption in developing these descriptions is that these processes would be implemented systematically and uniformly, eliminating the current paper, fax and postal mail exchange of information that is the prevalent form of information exchanges between Sponsors, IMs and Custodians. The basic approach to the process flow design, and that is integrated into the following descriptions are the following: • All message files from Sponsors to IMs will be followed by an immediate acknowledgement that a Notification message was received. Acknowledgements can be implemented within the communication protocol that supports the standard process. • The actual ‘accept’ or ‘reject’ message would be received at some later time, the timeframe to be negotiated between IM and Sponsor, as to whether the message is accepted or rejected. If the message rejects, a Reject Code and a comment supporting the reject would be sent to the initiator of the message. The message and flow standards have been developed with the assumption that they will be implemented electronically. Although these are defined as distinct messages, it is possible that they could be combined into one electronic message. Since this is the business layer of the message, it should be assumed that the technology layer and the protocol selected will handle message delivery, header/trailer information, time stamps, etc. and are not described in this document. A. New Account Set-Up The New Account Set-Up process at the IM starts after the contractual documentation process between the Client and Sponsor is complete. To complete this process, the FC submits the client’s profile to the Sponsor’s processing (or operations) department. The standard New Account Set-up process is an interaction between Sponsors and their IM partners to set-up accounts at the IMs on behalf of the Sponsors clients. There are four distinct processes for New Account Set-Up: • New Account Profile Notification • New Account Funding Notification • Authorization to Trade Notification, and • Trading Initiation (identified as a future objective) The New Account Set-Up Notifications standards are defined below and include a list of required message elements; the detailed elements for each message are located under section IV: Data Formats. Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute. All Rights Reserved 10
  13. 13. A1. New Account Profile Notification The New Account Profile contains a large amount of data and is formatted in three sections. The New Account Profile Notification is forwarded to the selected IM for their review and subsequent approval or rejection. The detailed message elements for New Account Profile are located under section IV. Data Formats. 1a. Acknowledgment: New Account Profile The IM notifies the Sponsor via the New Account Profile Acknowledgement of receipt of New Account Profile. The New Account Profile Acknowledgement information requirements are: 1b. Profile Accept / Reject IM performs a suitability review on the Profile received by analyzing the transmission to determine if the client’s data and responses to the questionnaire are appropriate for the selected investment strategy. In some cases, additional information may be necessary to complete the suitability review, which was not part of the original Profile (if applicable to the IM), and can be obtained from the Sponsor or FC. Upon completion of the suitability review, notification is then provided to the Sponsor via the Acceptance/Rejection message. The timeframe for accept/reject by the IM will be negotiated between the IM and the Sponsor; however the message default will be “Original Request Received Date & Time” plus 120 hours (5-days). After 5-days, the messages will be Rejected. A2. New Account Funding Notification Once funding has been received, the Sponsor will initiate a message indicating funding has been received. The Funding Notification will include the following information: • Inception account positions (with tax-lots), cash and unsettled trades • Security master file information on inception positions The required data for the New Account Funding notification are: Notification Type Notification Type code table Notification Date & Time Date & Time that the message sent by Sponsor Date & Time Date & Time that the message received by IM Client Account Number Client Account Number Legal Account Title Legal title of account Sponsor Firm ID Code for Sponsor Firm (for routing purposes) IM Firm Industry accepted code for IM Firm (for routing purposes) IM Style Individual IM's description for their tactical investment allocation approach Custodian Account Number Required only if used on Profile, when Custodian Copyright © 2002 Money Management Institute.

Authorization to Trade Notification. The Sponsor notifies the IM that it is now authorized to trade in the account. A notification message is sent to initiate the process. Message integrity will be implemented in the technology layer.
