Mutual Funds are investments that pool the funds of investors to purchase a range of securities to meet specified objectives, such as growth, income or both. Investors are reminded to consider the various objectives, fees, and other risks associated with investing in Mutual Funds. Please read the prospectus accordingly.

Interactive Brokers may receive compensation from fund companies in connection with purchases and holdings of mutual fund shares. Such compensation is paid out of the funds’ assets. However, IBKR does not solicit you to invest in specific funds and does not recommend specific funds or any other products to you. For additional information please view our Mutual Fund Product Listings.

  1. There is a substantial risk of loss in foreign exchange trading. The settlement date of foreign exchange trades can vary due to time zone differences and bank holidays. When trading across foreign exchange markets, this may necessitate borrowing funds to settle foreign exchange trades. The interest rate on borrowed funds must be considered when computing the cost of trades across multiple markets.
  2.

It is also important to acknowledge that this information cannot be relied upon to resolve any tax issues.

    IBKR does not provide legal or tax advice and nothing in this Tax Loss Harvesting Tool should be construed as tax advice. The Tax Loss Harvesting Tool is designed to simplify your calculation of the potential tax benefits of selling securities subject to a loss and, if you choose, replacing them with other securities you select. Tax laws are complex and subject to change. Capital gains are not taxed in all jurisdictions and thus the Tax Loss Harvesting Tool may not be suitable for tax residents of certain jurisdictions. You should consider consulting a tax advisor to determine your specific situation.

    IBKR PROVIDES THE TAX LOSS HARVESTING TOOL FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. IT IS FACTUAL IN NATURE, IT DOES NOT CONSIDER THE USER’S PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCES, AND IT IS NOT INTENDED AS A RECOMMENDATION THAT YOU BUY OR SELL ANY SECURITIES OR AN OFFER OR SOLICITATION TO BUY OR SELL SECURITIES. It does not consider positions you may hold or transactions you may undertake in other accounts (including those at IBKR) and the effect they would have on any transaction undertaken with the Tax Loss Harvesting tool.

    The Tax Loss Harvesting Tool seeks to maximize either short term or long term losses, as selected by you within the tool, and will override any default tax lot matching method otherwise applicable to you or your account settings. Where “any position with a capital loss” is selected, the Tax Loss Harvesting Tool seeks to maximize any losses.

    Non-US residents should be aware that the Tax Loss Harvesting tool differentiates between short term versus long term capital losses based on IRS definitions which apply to US residents; similarly, the application of wash sale rule is also based on IRS definitions and apply to US residents.
