Estimated Additional Return

This performance checklist and interactive performance graph compares the estimated time-weighted returns of a Wealthfront investment with the returns experienced by an average 20-year US Mutual Fund investor as described by DALBAR.

The graph and amounts are obtained by adding the projected additional rates of return from various Wealthfront investment features (as described here) to the average US Mutual Fund investor return from DALBAR (3.17% /year) and compounding the result on an annual basis over 20 years. This tool, therefore, is intended to highlight the possible differences in earnings if you use Wealthfront’s investment approach rather than the approach applied by the typical US Mutual Fund investor and where your earnings are reinvested over a 20-year period.

This tool is not intended to predict portfolio earnings or performance, nor is it a guarantee of future performance or earnings. Actual investors on Wealthfront may experience different results from the results shown. The performance checklist does not represent the results of actual trading using client assets.

Index Funds Over Mutual Funds

Arnott, Robert D., Andrew Berkin, and Jia Ye. 2000. “How Well Have Taxable Investors Been Served in the 1980s and 1990s?”

Tax-Loss Harvesting

We simulated the potential after-tax benefit of our tax-loss harvesting and found that it added an average of at least 1.13% annually, net of commissions. The results are hypothetical only and should not be relied upon for predicting future performance. See our white paper. Wealthfront’s tax-loss harvesting strategy is available only to portfolios with $100,000 in a taxable account.

Optimal Allocation

Wealthfront performed simulations that measured the difference in average annual return between a portfolio that used asset allocations recommended by Fidelity’s free online asset allocation tool and an allocation plan constructed using mean variance optimization, for the same risk tolerance, asset classes (US Stocks, US Bonds and International Stocks) and time period (1987-2010). Annual rebalancing was also assumed for both portfolios.

Automatic Rebalancing

Swensen, David, Unconventional Success, 2005, pp. 195-96.

Tax Aware Allocation

Wealthfront performed simulations that measured the difference in average annual return attributable to owning a taxable portfolio consisting of seven asset classes to a portfolio consisting of three asset classes assuming the same risk tolerance for the two portfolios for the period 1987-2010.

The three-asset-class portfolio consisted of US Stocks, US Bonds and International Stocks. Wealthfront’s seven-asset-class portfolio included US Stocks, Foreign Developed Stocks, Emerging Market Stocks, Dividend Growth Stocks, Municipal Bonds, TIPS and Natural Resources. Annual rebalancing was assumed. While the data used for this comparison and the optimal allocation comparison are from sources that Wealthfront believes are reliable, these comparisons represent Wealthfront’s opinion only.

Fee Disclosure

×
The monthly Wealthfront management fees displayed here are computed by applying Wealthfront’s 0.25% annual management fee to account amounts over $10,000 (since the first $10,000 invested in a Wealthfront account carries no management fee) and further converting the resulting annual amounts to monthly. Thus for a $100,000 account, Wealthfront’s annual management fee is ($100,000 – $10,000) x 0.0025 = $90,000 x 0.0025 = $225 per year. Assuming no change in the account’s value month-to-month, the monthly management fee would therefore be $225 /12 = $18.75 /month. Note also that Wealthfront charges no commissions or account maintenance fees. The ETFs in our portfolios do charge their own fees, however, although we specifically select ETF investments with low fees. Learn More About Our Fees.

Wealthfront created the above partial list of its clients by applying objective selection criteria to its full list of clients. The inclusion of a client does not imply that the client endorses or recommends Wealthfront as an investment advisor. Wealthfront does not know whether these clients approve or disapprove of its services. The objective criteria used to create the list does not consider any information about the investment performance of any client accounts, nor any other financial metrics, and no conclusions about the quality or nature of Wealthfront’s advisory services should be drawn from this list. The list was created by selecting all clients employed in the technology industry and then obtaining consent from those clients to display their identifying information. The list is sampled for display randomly such that no one client is displayed continuously or with any priority. Professional identity information is based on the most recent employment information provided to Wealthfront by the client, is subject to change, is not intended to be a recommendation or endorsement by any listed company, and does not imply any partnership between Wealthfront and any listed company.
