Portfolio rebalancing breakdown

By Alessandra Malito and Ellie Zhu

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.
