The annual management fee is calculated as a percentage of the total assets under management, ranging from 0.2% to 0.8%, and is charged monthly on a pro-rata basis. For example, if you invested on the 15th of a particular month, we will not charge you for the first 15 days.
The other fee included is the low fee associated with the ETFs, averaging 0.15% to 0.25%.
Additionally, there is a currency conversion fee charged by our vendor, at 0.08% on top of the spot rate. This preferential rate compares favourably against the significantly higher currency conversion fees charged by commercial or retail banks (can easily be in excess of 1% depending on transaction size).
Unlike most traditional financial managers, we do not (and never will) charge for withdrawals or account closures.
