How to Build a Robo Advisor: Advice for Starting a Robo Advisory
With the tremendous growth in robo advisor assets under management (AUM), financial institutions are scrambling to figure out how to build and become a robo advisor.
Starting a robo advisor service combines financially savvy with big data analytics, as well as a comprehensive understanding to how robo advisors work.
How Do Robo Advisors Work?
Robo advisors are platforms that leverage algorithms to handle users’ investment platforms. These services analyze each customer’s current financial status, risk aversion, and goals. From here, they recommend the best portfolio of stocks available based on that data.
And these automated financial services are poised to transform the tremendous worldwide wealth management industry.
