Getting out of analysis mode and into a more gut-feeling mode, the cheaper way is probably to ignore the issue. I've never seen a tax loss harvesting strategy that makes sense.


Really? I thought tax-loss harvesting was the kind of run-of-the-mill blocking and tackling that any competent investor does.

My beef with paying a 0.35% annual fee (and losing 18% of my wealth as a result) is that tax-loss harvesting (and portfolio rebalancing) are such simple concepts that you don't need a whole lot of expertise to accomplish it.
