New Perspectives on Asset Location Decisions

  1. Michael E. Kitces, CFP, CLU, ChFC

Using old rules of thumb to guide decisions on where to locate assets in clients' portfolios can lead to sub-optimal decisions. In this conversation, Michael Kitces advocates for including both tax efficiency and expected returns as the relevant dimensions that should guide decisions on whether to locate assets in tax-sheltered or taxable accounts. He also reviews the common client behavioral responses that can derail otherwise optimal plans and suggests a method for developing asset location strategy.
