The right compliance tools for the best algorithms
The rise of the robo-advisor seems inevitable. As an efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional advisors, it is hardly surprising that many asset managers want to or will move into this space. However, it is just as important for robo advisors to ensure they have the right compliance frameworks as it is for them to have the right algorithm. That’s why we help robo advisors to comply with financial market regulations.
The rise of the robo advisor
Robo-advisors are a class of financial advisers that use data algorithms to provide investment advice and investment management with little to no human supervision. Springing up to offer their algorithms for investing success, robo advisors have gained an increasing following in the last few years. The reason is simple: robo advisors usually promise that while returns will be higher, costs (fees) will be lower. And not to forget, when it comes to attracting millennials and other young clients, FinTech-driven investment solutions are a real game changer.

Compliance requirements also apply to robo advisors
Riding a decade-long bull market, robo advisory firms have proven that investors are willing to put complex and proprietary algorithms at the heart of their investment advice. Assets managed by digital platforms are expected to exceed $1 trillion over the next few years. With the additional market share, however, attention is growing. After years of catching up and giving freedom to robo advisors, regulators are ratcheting up their examination of digital platforms.
Thus, compliance policies and procedures needed for a more traditional investment advisory business are also needed for a FinTech-driven approach. It’s important that robo advisor compliance teams keep up with domestic and global regulatory guidance.
