Robo-Advisors are digital platforms that provide algorithm fuelled financial advice online with little to no human interaction. This software basically collects data from clients regarding their financial situation and future goals. On the basis of the collected data and with the help of the machine learning algorithm the software automatically allocates, optimizes and manages its clients’ portfolio. The allocation of equity by the robo advisors is generally done on the basis of the client’s risk preferences and desired target return.
The artificial intelligence based robo advisory industry is still a small but extremely fast growing industry. Its powerful algorithms provide low cost wealth management solutions to its users. Without almost any human interference, the robo advisors make apt decisions for the smarter investment and wealth management of the assets. While robo advisors are of great help to inexperienced investors due to its automisation nature but it also is equally helpful to seasoned investors. Using machine learning and deep learning algorithms robo advisors purely make decisions on the basis of the data they are fed and as a result they are on most occasions very accurate and in favour of the client. Robo advisors use a very hands-off approach which is quite popular with people who are not experienced investors. Within this approach the client just has to give his desired amount of money to the robo advisor and using its algorithm and software it invests the money in the best possible way and helps the client grow. Another reason why artificial intelligent robo advisors are very helpful is because they are extremely convenient. One can easily view their account, portfolio and progress online with a mobile app etc. This sort of convenience only comes with digitalization.
In today’s world where everything is digital, robo advisors have arrived and taken the wealth management industry by storm and have brought in its inevitable digitalization. By the looks of it they are here to stay and only going to grow by leaps and bounds.
