Online advisers do not categorize clients based on their level of income and will provide advice and investment strategies that are appropriate to the stage you are at. 4.    Better Service The online model fits the modern investor and offers the services to a broader audience compared to the traditional financial services. The advice can be given via Skype, email, or even a phone call and investors get the service they want on their own terms. You don’t have to schedule a meeting with your financial adviser as the advice is provided to you from wherever you are. This digital online experience means that you can be updated on how your investments are performing, get financial planning and analysis tips, and work with your adviser in real time and from any place across the globe. 5.    Robo-adviser is as Safe as a Bank Your accounts with Robo-adviser accounts have the same protections and are provided with similar account protection funds as any other registered bank or financial institution. You don’t have to worry about your investments loss in case of any unexpected occurrences. Key Takeaway Robo-advisers are modernizing investment advice and making it more affordable, more accessible, and more convenient for everyone and are thus something to consider.
