- Overview: General information about managed accounts
- Money Managers: List of money managers
- Investment Strategies: List of strategies available in Marketplace, Access, and Select

- Quick Links: List of links to help you navigate to other resources
We've also enhanced the search and filter capabilities on this page to help you find information quickly.

Easily review important characteristics without manual calculations
You can now easily view regional allocations and value and growth measures when using the equity and fixed income portfolio analysis tool, providing valuable summary information for client portfolios without the need to manually calculate values.
On the Regions tab, you can see at a glance how the investments in a portfolio are invested across various geographical areas, while the Value and Growth tab makes it easy to ensure that portfolios remain aligned with clients' investment risk parameters.
You can access these new features on the Portfolio Analysis Equity tab from the Positions, Trading, or Trading Watchlist tabs on Schwab Advisor Center®. In addition, you can export these and other portfolio analysis tabs into Microsoft Excel®, either individually or in a group.

New enhancements improve visibility for cash positions
To continue to enhance the trading platform and improve flexibility, we recently introduced new improvements to the Trade from Positions page, including:
- Accounts Holding Cash: This new filter under Add Accounts lets you quickly view all accounts with cash available.
- Use the new Cash and Cash Equivalence column, along with the Estimated (Est.) Amount column to quickly evaluate the total available cash in the account and compare it with the estimated impact that an order will have on that total.
With these enhancements, it's even easier for traders to use available cash to create new positions without ever leaving the trading interface. We will continue enhancing the trade from positions feature in the coming months, to ensure that our tools support the way you trade.
