I believe Robo-Adviser is a supporting software for regular basis problem if not intricate ones as meant for financial Advisor. Probably an Advisor can implement the Robo-adviser for their specific task which might be simple but time taking.
Its left to people to think whether they are going to compare both or simply think of Robo-Adviser as a tool that most financial advisor can use. More or less it can be compared with the Google’s self driven car vs human driven cars, and we know both of them have their own set of limitations in certain areas; so best thing is to get advantages of both the world.

Well done, Abby. If an advisor can check each box in your Authenticity Checklist, then they’ve likely developed this little old thing called “Trust” with their clients. And, as we’ve learned in this industry, earning one’s trust is the ultimate catalyst for winning new client relationships, and it is the glue that keeps those relationships together.
