Over 1,100 Strategies Now Available Across SMArtX’s Managed Accounts Platform
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla., November 3, 2022 — SMArtX Advisory Solutions (“SMArtX”), a leading innovator in unified managed accounts (UMA) technology and architect of the SMArtX turnkey asset management platform (‘TAMP’), announced 12 strategies have joined the SMArtX platform from six leading asset management firms. The additions bring the total number of strategies to over 1,103 as the platform marks a 19% increase in the number of available strategies over the last 12 months.
Five of the firms are new to the platform – Distillate Capital, Earnest Partners, First Eagle Separate Account Management, Leeward Investments, New York Life Investments – and added eight strategies in total, while Congress Asset Management Company increased their presence by 50% with another four strategies. The ongoing demand comes as the SMArtX platform continues to grow in assets and expand its custodial relationships. Furthermore, the volatile markets have advisors harvesting losses after several years of positive market returns. This provides the opportunity to allocate to new strategies without incurring a larger tax bill.
“As advisors look for easier ways to tax harvest accounts, rebalance holdings, and allocate to new strategies better suited to today’s market environment, the use of platforms like SMArtX swells,” said Evan Rapoport, Founder and CEO of SMArtX Advisory Solutions. “Increased use is one of the core reasons we continue to see these leading asset management firms come onto the SMArtX UMA platform and benefit from its scaled distribution archetype.”
The full list of new strategies includes:

SMArtX’s continued growth is driven by two main applications of its technology: the off-the-shelf TAMP offering, which is built using SMArtX Advisory Solutions’ proprietary UMA technology, and the ability to further deploy that tailored UMA technology through APIs to meet the mandates of large enterprises, RIA platforms, and hybrid broker-dealers.
“Downward market pressures have caused rifts in the typical asset allocation model,” said Jonathan Pincus, President and COO of SMArtX. “The wider breadth of strategies, ease of allocation, and tools to effectively manage portfolios intra-day provide SMArtX clients with more than just a technology vendor – we are a partner helping to expand businesses across the advisory industry during these uncertain times.”
