Smart rebalancing keeps your asset allocation on track and protects investors from unknowingly over concentrating their risks due to market drift. Rebalancing helps reduce the volatility of your returns, increasing your peace of mind. It can also increase your risk-adjusted returns. From 1992 to 2002, periodic rebalancing grew portfolio returns by 0.4% per annum .
Unbalanced portfolios tend to suffer greater losses in market downturns. By wisely allocating dividends and other contributions, FutureAdvisor maintains your target asset allocation while helping you avoid unnecessary taxes and trading costs.
