FAQ / Rebalancing

What are the tax implications of rebalancing?

Selling assets that are valued higher than their initial purchase price usually involves realizing gains and incurring taxes — which we know, so we don’t just sell every overweight asset to get your portfolio back to its targets. When we rebalance your portfolio, we evaluate the tradeoffs and will only realize gains when the benefit of moving your portfolio toward your target allocation outweighs the expected tax cost. We may also sell assets that are valued below their initial purchase price to offset these gains.
