Benefits of rebalancing your retirement portfolio
You’ve probably heard the famous investing adage of “buy low, sell high.” Although it seems simple enough to do, it’s actually pretty complicated. One way to systematically buy low and sell high is to rebalance your account. Gains on higher performing investments, in turn, can be invested in alternate investments. With the automatic rebalancing feature, this will be taken care for you.
To take advantage of this feature, login to your retirement account and opt in to the auto rebalancing feature. Navigate to: My 401k >> Investments >> Auto Rebalance.
