How does Acorns rebalance my portfolio?

Acorns automatically rebalances your portfolio as you invest. Every time you deposit or withdraw funds, we adjust the proportions of ETFs purchased to move your account towards its target portfolio allocation.

We also periodically review, typically on a quarterly basis, and rebalance your portfolio whenever the percentage holding of one or more ETFs fluctuates 5% above or below its target allocation. We sell overrepresented ETFs and use the proceeds to buy underrepresented ETFs to bring your portfolio towards its target allocation.

Rebalancing also occurs whenever you request to change your portfolio. We adjust the allocation of each fund to match the new risk profile. We sell overrepresented ETFs and use the proceeds to buy underrepresented ETFs to bring your portfolio in line with its new target allocation. This rebalancing occurs within a few business days of a portfolio change request.

We do not recommend frequent changing of portfolios, or attempting to time the market, as this can potentially result in reduced performance and/or adverse tax consequences.
