Taxes Take the Glory Out of Investors’ Gains
You can help your clients keep more of what they make — with tax-efficient investing strategies
Many Americans lose sight of the role taxes play in achieving, or falling short of, their long-term financial goals. They don’t realize that, if left unchecked, taxes can reduce returns by as much as 60%*.
The fact is, taxes on investment income and capital gains affect every investor — not just the ultra-wealthy. A constantly evolving tax code may mean greater tax liability in the future for all investors.

*Source: Parametric Portfolio Associates: Based on a hypothetical tax-free $100,000 portfolio invested 60% in stocks (based on the Russell 3000) and 40% bonds (based on the Barclays Aggregate) with (1) no liquidators. (2) interest income and dividends taxed annually at historical top marginal tax rates. (3) capital gains realized at 50% per year and taxed at the historical long-term capital gains tax rate. (4) portfolio is held for 36 years from (1979-2015). The intent is to portray a worst-case scenario. The portfolio would have grown from $100,000 to about $4.0 million. If the portfolio was taxed as indicated above, it would have lost 60% of its value, due to taxes paid and earnings lost on that money. Tax-managed investment strategies are designed to minimize capital gains distributions and maximize after-tax returns. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
