The Value of Tax Alpha
Parametric’s Custom Core strategies are designed to provide flexible, tax-efficient equity index exposure. “Tax alpha” is how we quantify the value of active tax-management. Here, we explore the two key drivers of tax alpha - the overall market return and cross-sectional stock volatility.
Tax Management of Factor-Based Portfolios
The risk-adjusted returns of factor strategies can look quite attractive. However, the turnover associated with them can significantly reduce their after-tax excess returns. In this article, we report the results of our after-tax study of these strategies.
Parametric’s Custom CoreTM Strategies let investors take charge of their passive mandates. Since our portfolios are held as separate accounts, we have the ability to customize to the needs of the client. Investors can select from a wide range of benchmarks and then tailor their exposure to incorporate their unique objectives.
