Utilize the world's most intuitive Custom Indexing platform, Canvas
Historically, advisors had to mix off-the-shelf products that weren't built with any one client in mind. Tax inefficiency, overlapping positions, unintended exposures, and high active costs are all inherent challenges in this one-to-many approach.
In the early 2000s, Direct Indexing began to emerge as an alternative, helping to address these challenges by owning securities directly rather than limiting oneself to a potentially cumbersome set of pooled investment vehicles.
Thanks to technology, the next evolution of Direct Indexing - Custom Indexing - builds on the tax management advantages of Direct Indexing but takes personalization a step further: incorporate proprietary factor exposures (value, yield, momentum, low volatility), tilt towards and restrict across multiple ESG categories, reduce overall portfolio risk through security level restrictions and tax-aware transitions.
