Robo-Advisory is one of the hottest topics in FinTech innovation. The goal is a fully digital user-friendly, automated and transparent user experience for investing.

Initially emerging as a disruptive start-up technology, this new form of digital investment advice is about to become a key service component of banks and asset managers alike. 

In the years ahead, Robo Advisory will change the landscape of asset and wealth management profoundly. We are convinced that now is the right time to get involved, manage this change and gain an edge.
