Robo advisors are steadily growing in popularity, and these online investment advisors are threatening to take massive amounts of business away from traditional financial advisors. Automated financial advisor apps and services will manage approximately 10% of all global assets under management (AUM) by 2020, according to projections from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. But how do robo advisors work? Is automated portfolio management truly better than a human being who manages your funds? Read on to learn the basics of robo advisors and what the future holds for this segment of the finance world.
Robo advisors, a class of financial advisor that provide financial advice or investment management online with moderate to minimal human intervention, are growing in popularity. These provide digital financial advice based on mathematical rules or algorithms to automatically allocate, manage and optimize clients' assets. This allows these companies to provide more affordable and accessible services. Unlike conventional asset management services which require large amounts of investment capital, digital asset management services can be obtained starting with much lower investment capital, sometimes only a few hundred bucks, other times, a few thousands. The robo advisor develops a personalized portfolio for clients and then monitors it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
