✅ Does Robo Advisory Market Have A Perspective?
For our next digest, we know that Robo-advisors are on the rise, but what does the overall wealth management market have to say? A growth rate of 53.54 percent is predicted for the global Robo advisory industry from 2020 to 2025, resulting in revenues of USD 93.70 billion. That alone makes it perfectly clear that this game-changing technology is here to stay. These robo-advisors usually work by gathering information from clients through online surveys about their financial position and objectives. After that, they utilize the information to give advice and invest client funds automatically. These robo-advisory digital platforms have been very popular among wealth management companies because of their cost-effectiveness. Afterall, they are rather inexpensive and require minimal or no human interaction. As the fintech sector adopts robo-advisors in order to increase their income opportunities, the market is growing. Unsurprisingly, there are several factors that have catalyzed the robo-advisory market’s rapid growth. The most obvious factors, of course, would be the tech-savviness of the new generation of investors as well as the greater need for convenience because of the pandemic. Because of this, financiers must alter their business models so that they can remain relevant in wealth management in the digital age.
