Re-balance Cycle Reminder All MyPlanIQ’s newsletters are archived here.

For regular SAA and TAA portfolios, the next re-balance will be on Monday, January 7, 2019. You can also find the re-balance calendar for 2019 on ‘Dashboard‘ page once you log in.

Please note that we now list the next re-balance date on every portfolio page.
