German term or phrase: steuerlich optimiert
"Ein Feeder Fund bietet die Vorteile, dass kleinere Mindestinvestitionssummen erreicht und je nach Wohnsitz der Investoren die Investitionen ***steuerlich optimiert*** werden können."

This is from a financial services brochure aimed at rich members of the general public.

Can anyone suggest a neat way of phrasing "steuerlich optimisiert". I have trawled the net but haven't come across anything I am happy with. Is "tax-optimised" a viable option or not?

Many thanks
