The Roboadvisor is a digital wealth management service that banks offer to their retail customers. In particular, the solution provides personalized investment advice, fully digitally delivered, applying predefined algorithms for the portfolio construction and typically offering passive investment products (e.g. ETFs).
The Roboadvisor service is addressed to customers who prefer to make their own investment choices without the support of the "human" financial advisor and decide to invest a limited overall amount.
The bank generally implements this service to intercept the "affluent clients of tomorrow" and uses it as a further distribution channel for its investment offer.
There are numerous Roboadvisor solutions on the market. Open Banking enhances these solutions by guaranteeing a greater personalization of the service, strengthening customer profiling thanks to the account data analysis regulated by PSD2.
