Robo Advisor: Not Just Another Robo Article

Monday, August 3rd, 2015

By the time you finished your coffee this morning you probably already read a dozen headlines about Robo Advisors. And possibly, by the time you have your second cup there could even be a dozen new robo startups. We’ve all read about how robos are going to put traditional advisors out of business; or, revolutionize the business for those same advisors (indeed, there are many camps in between). This is not another article about automated advice or about the war of words between Wealthfront and Betterment and Schwab and Vanguard and, well, anyone else for that matter. This article isn’t about questioning how automated investments will perform during a market correction, debating whether allocating a significant portion of portfolios to cash is good or bad, or examining whether automated tax loss harvesting is diametrically opposed to Buffet’s (or Graham’s) investment philosophy. It’s definitely not an article about how Millennials are reshaping the investment world.
