>>Are there any reasons I should not split the account? <<

Simplest thing to do is have one account and invest 1/2 in one strategy and 1/2 in the other.

The reason to not have two separate accounts, at certain levels of account balances some fees get lowered/waived or you get access to other benefits.

Besides, it is easier to keep track of one account than two.



Also easier to do periodic rebalancing when you don't have to move funds between custodians. Same day transfer is a plus too.
