“Fiduciary duty is essentially a legal relationship of confidence or trust between two or more parties… The fiduciary [adviser] acts at all times for the sole benefit and interests of another, with loyalty to those interests.  A fiduciary must not put personal interests before that duty, and must not be in a situation where his fiduciary duty to clients conflicts with a fiduciary duty to any other entity…”

– John C. Bogle, Founder, The Vanguard Group

It may be a surprise to consumers that not all actors in the financial services industry are held to the same professional standards. While the medical community has been using variations of the Hippocratic Oath as a baseline for ethical behavior and judgment for thousands of years, nothing of this universal nature exists in the financial services community.

At Unconventional Investor, as a registered investment adviser, not only are we legally bound to uphold our fiduciary duty to our clients, that duty is also an ethical and moral cornerstone and founding principle of our business. As part of our fiduciary pledge, we will always:

Put your best interest first

Act with prudence, skill, care, diligence and good judgment

Provide full and fair disclosure of all important facts

Avoid conflicts of interest

Fully disclose and fairly manage any unavoidable conflicts

We are dedicated to providing fully transparent and professional services, with the client’s best interest the sole motivation for any advice or decision.
