Direct Indexing Solutions for Tax-Efficient Diversification

Learn how a direct indexing strategy can help control the tax impact of diversifying a concentrated stock position.

Kevin Maeda, Chief Investment Officer of Active Index Advisors®, presents a tax-efficient solution for investors who need to diversify their concentrated stock holdings.

  • Having too much invested in a small number of holdings exposes investors to the risk that one stock could suddenly wipe out their wealth.
  • Some investors drag their feet on diversifying their concentrated holdings because of concerns about capital gains taxes.
  • Active Index Advisors® uses several strategies that can help unwind large stock positions and mitigate the tax consequences, based on investor priorities.
  • This approach provides the benefits of reducing the tax burden of selling appreciated shares and building greater diversification into the overall portfolio.
