Tax-efficient portfolio transitions using direct indexing

March 26, 2020 - 3 min read

Kevin Maeda, Chief Investment Officer, Direct Indexing, Natixis Investment Managers Solutions, describes how to transition an existing portfolio into an index-based separately managed account with minimal tax impact.

  • There are many reasons investors may want to move their investments to a new account – but liquidating a portfolio and starting from scratch can trigger an unwanted tax bill.
  • With a separately managed account, investors can transfer selected securities to the new account, selling only as much as necessary for proper diversification.
  • Because each account is customized, investors can specify capital gains limits to minimize, delay, or avoid any net taxes.

Tax-loss harvesting is the selling of securities at a loss to offset a capital gains tax liability.
