Tax Efficient Investing Calculator

3 Obstacles to Building Wealth

  • Taxation

  • Fees

  • Lack of Diversification

Fees, tax inefficiencies and lack of portfolio diversification can cut your portfolio returns by several percentage points per year.


When you add up these fees over many compounding years you could be looking at a significant amount of costs. Over a lifetime that could result in a loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars or more depending on the size of your portfolio.

We encourage every investor to use our calculator before investing to understand the taxable inefficiencies and your options.
