INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Unified Managed Account - UMA'

The unified managed account is an evolution of the separate account, which is similar in that it is a professionally managed account which is rebalanced often but only contains one type of investment instrument (such as mutual funds). If an investor wanted to have a well-diversified portfolio of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, he or she would need to open three separate accounts. The UMA removes the need to have more than one account and combines all of the assets into one account with a single registration.
