Parametric Tax Harvest Core helps you do both while delivering consistent performance and diversification.
Take an active approach to passive strategies
Parametric Tax Harvest Core seeks to closely match the pretax return of an investor’s chosen exposure while outperforming on an after-tax basis. We construct portfolios with low-cost, highly liquid, sector-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and systematically harvest tax losses throughout the year.

How it works
Where Tax Harvest Core fits in a complete investment strategy
Actively managed portfolios aren’t always tax sensitive, and higher turnover could result in significant gain realization. A tax-managed passive mandate as a core holding consistently strives to produce net-realized losses and can help offset gains. This can result in better overall after-tax returns and help your clients keep more of their money invested.
Continuous and active investment management
Our systematic approach to tax-loss harvesting seeks to maximize opportunities for after-tax returns while tracking closely to your client's chosen benchmark. We assess losses at the lot level for each sector ETF, and we harvest losses when value falls 5% below cost basis, purchasing replacement sector ETFs to keep the portfolio in line with its benchmark.
Once we’ve designed and customized the portfolio, our proprietary optimization process continuously manages for both risk and tax-management opportunities.
