One of the key components of the 55 Institutional approach to asset management is to systematically harvest tax losses. This is something that can be done in any of the 55 Institutional products or 55 Institutional can provide tax-loss harvesting for the ETF holdings in third party managed portfolios.

Certainly ongoing tax-loss harvesting can enhance overall returns for the taxable investor in two ways:

  • Minimizing current year tax liabilities
  • Deferring tax liabilities (leveraging compounding and potential changes in tax rates)

For many, tax-loss harvesting is either an infrequent (i.e. annual) or simplistic (1:1 ETF replacement) exercise. However, 55 Institutional believes there is value to be had in an ongoing systematic approach to harvesting losses as well as a sophisticated approach to the selection of “proxy baskets”.
