  • (1888PressRelease) August 09, 2016 - LONDON, UK - Low cost, automated investment advice is set to become the core of financial planning services, with a market potential of $19.5 trillion assets under management, according to a new report by Ignition House, the financial services experts, and The Business Research Company. The 'Robo Advice: Revolution or Evolution?' report demonstrates that as awareness of automated financial services options increases and assets under management grow, many consumers and institutions will want to move away from expensive traditional investment advice into low-cost automated options. This will initially be driven mainly at the corporate level, with large institutional client wins by robo offerings. Consumer-focused services will come later.

    "The robo advice market is set for explosive growth, and we at Ignition House are excited to be the go-to authority tracking its development" commented Janette Weir of Ignition House, one of the report's authors.

    US Market Leads the Way
    The report shows that the current market for robo advice is dominated by the USA, with an estimated $1.2 trillion under management. The USA's favourable regulatory environment, high propensity to save in equities and the size of its retirement savings market all mean that the USA is the most promising market for robo advice. India and China present long term opportunities but continue to be tied to traditional property, gold and money market fund investments. In Europe the UK looks set for growth, with major pension funds available for investment and a positive environment for fintech.

    Customer Focus Is Key
    The Robo Advice report ( gives providers many ideas on how to develop their offerings going forward, with best practice examples from companies leading the market. It highlights the importance of targeting specific investment niches, creating a simple, differentiated offering that consumers can understand. Customer-centred approaches will be needed in order to retain customers in such a competitive market. This lesson is yet to be learned: few providers employ Heads of Customer Experience to manage this. Visual stimulus and gamification are ways that companies can increase differentiation and engagement.

    From Robo Advice to Artificial Intelligence
    The report argues that robo advice ( is still in its infancy, and the market will look very different going forward. Industry commentators' consensus is that developments in artificial intelligence and virtual mean that we are less than five years from automated solutions capable of addressing many of today's financial advice needs. In this new era, they envisage systems learning from each interaction, facilitating more tailored solutions, and encouraging people to share more information. In future Amazon-like recommendations ('people like you also did this') will be commonplace and systems will 'know' when life events occur that trigger new financial needs (getting married, having a baby) by mining personal information from social media.
