Our historical returns

Taxes matter

Maximizing pre-tax returns does not maximize your after-tax returns. Wealthfront exclusively focuses on maximizing your after-tax returns by using index funds, rebalancing your portfolio with dividends, using different asset allocations for taxable and retirement accounts, and implementing tax-loss harvesting.

Risk matters

Individuals often compare diversified portfolio returns against a stock index like the S&P 500®. That is not a good comparison because a stock-only portfolio has a much higher risk than a diversified portfolio.
