Very good question. We don't trade often so you won't realize a lot of capital gains. One of our management objectives is tax efficiency — our fund selection criteria values after-tax returns over pre-tax returns. We prefer long-term gains over short-term gains to keep taxes as low as possible.
If for tax reasons you're not prepared for us to sell a security, you can keep it out of your account. Here's how to get just a portion of your account managed.
We recommend speaking with a tax professional to discuss your specific situation.
