State Street’s Bonds On 2022’s Tax-Loss Harvesting Opportunities

Allison Bonds, CIMA, CPWA, Managing Director, Head of Private Wealth Management & Independent Wealth Management, State Street SPDR ETFs joined Keith Black, Managing Director, RIA Channel to discuss how advisors can maximize tax-loss harvesting opportunities in fixed income.

Although 2022 was a challenging year for both equities and fixed income markets, tax-loss harvesting benefits serves as the major silver lining, says Bonds. As the investment climate continues to change, particularly in fixed income, advisors have the opportunity to bank this year’s losses to offset future gains, while at the same time repositioning client portfolios for the current environment. 

“The biggest misconception about tax-loss harvesting is that it’s a once-a-year-event, but actually its something that should be considered throughout the year,” says Bonds pointing to this year’s volatile market and signs of a rolling recession. Bonds suggests advisors ask themselves three key questions when evaluating a position for tax-loss harvesting:

1. Do I still have conviction in this asset class?
2. Is there a better exposure for this particular environment? 
3. Can I reduce expenses for clients at the same time?

Important Risk Information

Equity securities may fluctuate in value and can decline significantly in response to the activities of individual companies and general market and economic conditions.

Bonds generally present less short-term risk and volatility than stocks, but contain interest rate risk (as interest rates raise, bond prices usually fall); issuer default risk; issuer credit risk; liquidity risk; and inflation risk. These effects are usually pronounced for longer-term securities. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to a substantial gain or loss.
