Mining for tax gold: Charitable donations
A simple question at your next meeting may be all it takes to uncover valuable tax “gold.” For the charitably inclined, a more tax-efficient alternative to effectively liquidating appreciated securities and donating the after-tax cash proceeds to charity may be to contribute the most highly appreciated securities directly to charity and then replenish the account with cash.
There is more to diversity than initially meets the eye
Investors interested in intersectionality—how gender intersects with other aspects of identity such as race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, and religion, and the implications for social and political equity—may choose to use their shares to directly engage in a dialogue with companies to push for more data disclosure, more diversity on companies’ boards, and policies and practices that are supportive of minority employees.
The S&P 500 Index return was up 18.4% in 2020, even though 95% of its constituents experienced a drawdown of more than 10%. This is not, however, just another crazy thing that happened in 2020. The pairing of strong US large-cap index performance with large drawdowns to most index constituents has been the norm and not the exception since 1975. The S&P 500 return was positive in 38 of 46 years since 1975, while more than half the S&P 500 constituents had a drawdown larger than 10% in 41 of those years.

Would you like to set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) for your account? If yes, click here. If not, you are able to enable MFA for your account at anytime in your Profile by clicking Edit Profile.
With Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), an extra layer of security is added to your account to prevent unauthorized users from logging in, even if they have your password. This extra security measure requires you to verify your identity using a randomized code we will send you each time you attempt to log in. MFA reduces the risk of unauthorized requests from your Aperio Client Portal account and provides extra security for your data.
You can choose to receive your security code through one of three ways: by text message/SMS, voice call, or the Okta Verify app. Through Aperio’s partnership with Okta, you can access their free Verify app to receive your MFA token on your Apple or Android device.
