Benefits of Portfolio Rebalancing1
This comparison shows the performance of two portfolios during the period 1987 to 2012. Each portfolio starts out with a traditional allocation of 60 percent stocks and 40 percent bonds. One is rebalanced annually, and the other is not. The rebalanced portfolio experienced lower volatility and higher risk-adjusted returns.2
