Transparency and Ultra Low Fees

Unconventional Investor invoices clients quarterly.  These charges are a percentage-based fee, based on the dollar value of managed assets. Fees are billed at quarter end with a one-quarter lag, meaning that the June 30, 2013 invoice reflects holdings as of March 31, 2013.  Cash is not part of managed assets for fee purposes.

Our sole source of income is client fees.  We accept no fees from any third party, avoiding conflicts of interest and providing alignment of interests between adviser and client.  Additionally, unlike financial advisers that receive up front commissions or charge transaction fees, Unconventional Investor only charges fees after a client portfolio is fully established and never charges commissions or transaction fees.
