What Is a Robo-Advisor?

A robo advisor is a financial planner or advisor that offers investment portfolio management services based on automated algorithms. Most of these systems were designed by financial experts, Nobel prize winners and well regarded academicians. The automated investment advisor premise is that with a systematized program, investment returns can be increased and costs minimized giving you a greater return with less risk.

The robo-advisors are not all alike. Here at Robo-Advisor Pros, we dig into the similarities and distinctions between the various platforms. We try out many of the platforms and give you honest feedback about the pros and cons of each provider.
