Robo-advice News Wrap – Monday 12 June

Robo-advice news from around the world, summarised daily.

HSBC’s robo-advice launch last week made international headlines. But using technology to bridge the “advice gap” for poorer pensioners is a growing theme in pension markets, with other businesses and the British government providing all kinds of robo wealth services the past few years.

Common knowledge has that millennials are the best target market for robo-advisers. But are they? Studies are showing that tech-savvy pre-retirees are just as open-minded about technology as young. They’re also much richer. Australian robo-advisers like Six Park are catching on.
