Portfolio rebalancing breakdown

Portfolio rebalancing software can save advisers hours and hours of work. Instead of manually rebalancing each client's portfolio one by one, advisers can change a batch of accounts, view assets and review recommendations.

The software has become so much of a head turner that Morningstar just acquired one of the leading portfolio rebalancing software providers in the industry, Total Rebalance Expert.
