Does Risk Parity affect Tax-Loss Harvesting?

We will not be able to harvest tax losses for the Risk Parity portion of your portfolio. We cannot harvest losses for that portion of the portfolio because there are no suitable alternative securities that we can buy to replace the Wealthfront Risk Parity Mutual Fund. That being said, we believe the net expected benefit of Risk Parity makes this a worthwhile trade-off.

The Wealthfront Risk Parity Fund (the “Fund”) is managed by Wealthfront Strategies LLC (formerly known as WFAS LLC), a registered investment adviser and a wholly owned subsidiary of Wealthfront Inc. Wealthfront Strategies LLC receives an annual management fee equal to 0.25% of the Fund’s average daily net assets. Northern Lights Distributors, LLC, a member of FINRA and SIPC, serves as the principal distributor for the Fund. Wealthfront Inc., is not affiliated with Northern Lights Distributors, LLC.

Before investing in the Wealthfront Risk Parity Fund, you should carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus. Please read the fund prospectus or summary prospectus carefully before investing. There is no guarantee that any investment will achieve its objectives, generate positive returns, or avoid losses.

In order to add the Wealthfront Risk Parity Fund, we must rebalance your portfolio. As part of this process, if we sell positions at a gain, and you do not have sufficient harvested losses to offset those gains, you’ll pay taxes on the net gain.
