Trust’s rebalancing tool is built in to the platform and is available to all advisors on the platform at no additional charge.
Unlike other companies’ rebalancing tools, which require data to be uploaded to their software and then trades are exported to a custodian, the Trust rebalancing tool is based on real-time positions. This ensures that data used to calculate the trades is not out-dated, thus leaving accounts either in an over-drafted or under-invested situation.
The other benefit of real-time rebalancing is it drastically reduces the time it takes to rebalance. While some advisors spend hours or days rebalancing all of their accounts, this process can be reduced to seconds on the Trust platform.
There is no need for manual calculations, complicated spreadsheets, tracking client execution rotations, or third-party software licensing or maintenance fees.
Since the rebalancing function is an integral part of our platform, rebalancing thousands of accounts only takes seconds. In fact, the entire process – from selecting accounts to executing and reconciling the trades back to accounts – can take as little as a minute or two.
Two Levels of Rebalancing
Rebalancing can be accomplished at two levels on the Trust platform.
Designed to bring a standard model back into balance, model rebalancing looks at asset allocations in an investment model and processes the model to bring its assets into balance if it is out of balance.
For accounts with any combination of composite and standard models, account rebalancing looks at the allocation of the models directly associated to the account. If an allocation is out of balance, the models will be processed to bring the account allocations into balance as well as bring the assets in the model into balance.
Advanced Filtering and Exceptions
There is a wide selection of filtering options to help you select accounts to be rebalanced. Whether you want to rebalance only accounts on their anniversary date or only accounts with excess cash, selecting accounts is simple on the Trust platform.
You can also mark exceptions – such as excluding an account from rebalancing- to ensure you always get the outcome you desire.
