After-tax performance is never an afterthought

Tax-loss harvesting

In equity markets with volatility and dispersion of returns, there are almost always stocks that decline in price, creating opportunities to harvest losses.

Values-aligned investing

Portfolios can be individually customized to reflect investor’s personal values in the environment, social, and governance areas.
