Frequently asked questions

We rebalance when the market has moved your portfolio away from its target allocation by more than a few percent, either 3% or 5% depending on the asset classes' target allocation in your portfolio. We will also rebalance your account if during our periodic reviews we update our models to balance between our long-term investing approach and changing market conditions. As you add cash to a portfolio, we buy ETFs to maintain your target allocation. When you make withdrawals, we sell ETFs in a balanced fashion to help make sure you stay on track.
