Re: interesting article

I've seen a number of studies that indicate that rebalance intervals longer than 1 year result in better average long term performance than 1 year rebalance intervals.

But the real benefit of rebalancing is not to maximize returns but to minimize risk. The longer the interval between rebalancing events, the higher the probability is that you are get into a significantly higher risk situation.
