What is a Buy/sell spread?

Typically, when you buy or sell assets on the stock market, there is a buy/sell spread. This is valid as well for your investment with Unhedged. When you put money in, take money out or change your allocation with Unhedged, you find a similar buy/sell spread. When someone moves money in or out, the algorithms change the positions. Every movement of funds will incur costs. The buy/sell spread ensures that transaction costs are allocated to the investors who are making transactions, not to investors who are not. It is not a fee paid to Unhedged.
