What is rebalancing?
Rebalancing is essential because your portfolio will drift out of its asset allocation over time. Using a rebalance tool makes sure that your portfolio stays within the desired asset allocation.
The video below explains in a little more detail what rebalancing means.

There are many advantages to rebalancing regularly:
- Rebalancing automates your investment decisions, making your immune to biases that might otherwise hurt you.
- Rebalancing sells assets that have gone up in value and buys assets that have gone down in value. This is precisely what you want to happen. By rebalacing regulary you are essentially buying low and selling high.
- Rebalancing lowers the risk of your portfolio.
- Rebalancing could net you more money.
The only two disadvantages to rebalancing your portfolio are:
- Rebalancing costs a little bit of money in commissions to make the trades to bring balance to the portfolio. This is negligible in comparison to the value rebalancing provides. Many brokers also offer free-of-charge trades on many mutual funds and ETFs.
- Rebalancing takes a little bit of time – it may be an hour or two every year.

There can be tax consequences when you rebalance especially if you sell an asset class in order to buy another, so have that in mind.
To avoid a possible tax event consider instead buying more of the asset classes that have decreased in value. That way you don’t have to sell any assets but you can still reach your required target allocation.
Consider your total portfolio allocation across accounts. You could hold only stocks in one account and only bonds in another account. You decide what makes sense but seeing all your assets as one investment portfolio could save you transaction fees and taxes. It could also help you with establishing a correct asset location (placing asset classes where it makes the most sense tax-wise).
