Wealthfront- How It WorksAdded: 1/5/12
Tax-loss harvesting is a technique used to lower your taxes while maintaining the expected risk and return profile of your portfolio. It harvests previously unrecognized investment losses to offset taxes due on your other gains and income. You can reinvest these tax savings to significantly grow the value of your portfolio. Wealthfront developed software to make this service, traditionally only available to accounts in excess of $10MM, available to taxable accounts with at least $100k.
|Launch Date||December 1, 2011|
