Beyond robo-advisors, what might the future be for following generations?

The media seems to have only one word to say at present, when explaining our future: robots! Is it time for robo-advisors to replace our human members?

If you take a look to some of our previous editorials, written by our Secretary General or some of our members, you will have understood that things are much more complicated.

In short, we may summarize it by saying that, of course, some direct employment may disappear, but not firms and the market.

What may be dangerous is not digitalization, but more standardization and a ban on the need for advice for individuals even if they have no skills.

However, if you look at the situation like that, it’s as if you cannot see the forest for the trees.

First of all, I have to say this digitalization will not lead to a new world. We are facing the new world already!

After 2007, the “year of paper” for our professionals, 2018 will probably be deemed Digital Day.

This editorial is the last for 2017, and our D Day is expected … tomorrow! The question remaining will then be: are you ready? ...

 

  
 

The European Federation of Financial Advisers and Financial Intermediaries (FECIF) was chartered in June 1999 for the defence and promotion of the role of financial advisers and intermediaries in Europe.

FECIF, the only body representing European financial advisers and intermediaries, it is based in Brussels, the heart of Europe.
