Direct Indexing: Maximizing Tax Value & Fueling Growth

Available On Demand

Direct Indexing is more popular than ever and is on track to outpace the growth rate of exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and mutual funds over the next five years. Historically, the only way to purchase an index has been through the use of a pooled vehicle such as a mutual fund or ETF. But recent technological advances, such as innovations in digital investment platforms that allow for automated, highly advanced optimization capabilities, have made individual security ownership of an index broadly accessible to retail investors. 

Direct Indexing can be an extremely valuable tool for advisors that are looking to incorporate the risk and reward predictability of an index into a multi-asset class portfolio for their clients. Join us for this webinar and you’ll discover:

  • How advisors are using Direct Indexing to fuel growth
  • Ways to combine Direct Indexing with ESG to create firm-level solutions based on collective client preferences
  • How Direct Indexing can decrease product costs while helping to increase after-tax value for clients
