Most financial advisors are in a state of denial about robo-advice. They say clients value the human touch or need real people to understand the nuances of their financial lives. They’re wrong. Soon robo-advice will be much more efficient than human advice ever was. The next step in wealth management is to get rid of it’s weakest and costliest part – the human advisor.
ML in behavioural analysis that tracks typical investors mistakes and reacts on nervousness, not thought-through decisions, spontaneous reactions to market downturns etc. Contact the investors when they really need explanation and support.
Sophisticated portfolio allocation and rebalancing backed by algorithmic trading and execution algorithms. Real time adjustments in investment strategy (change in goals, life situation, job, location, marital status, remuneration) on finest level, that human advisors could not deliver
Combination of long term advice with ML analysis of current budget status (with integration all bank accounts) and spending and saving practices. The result would be high level plans combined with help in everyday execution.
Chatbot and voice technology – explaining the investment strategy and current market situation in most natural manner.
ML in in analysis and navigation of tax nuances. Implementing those AI functionalities in robo advice systems will be important step on the way to delivering more financial freedom.
