This announcement highlights Revolut’s launch of a robo-advisor in the US, offering automated and affordable portfolio management services.
A robo-advisor has been launched in the US by Revolut, a financial super-app with more than 30 million users globally.
In comparison to traditional businesses, this new function automates the maintenance of consumer investment portfolios in order to provide a more seamless and affordable investing experience.
Users have the option to invest through Revolut’s robo-advisor in one of five diversified portfolios based on their level of risk tolerance. The investing process is handled by it, which diligently manages and monitors the portfolios in addition to automatically distributing deposited cash into the market.
The robo-advisor rebalances the portfolio from time to time to make sure that it is in line with the customer’s risk tolerance. This implies that customers can increase their money without always managing it manually.
It expands Revolut’s lineup of goods and services intended to address customers’ needs about money. It aspires to automate and simplify the investment process while offering customers portfolios that are well managed.
As the head of wealth and trading for Revolut US, Jack Callahan emphasized the need of accessibility in investing while noting that many clients lack the time or knowledge necessary to actively manage portfolios or invest in certain securities.
“We are thrilled to introduce a robo-advisor to the range of wealth and financial products and services offered by our superapp. And we are aware that many of our clients lack the time necessary to manage a portfolio or make individual stock investments. We aim to provide our customers the ability to make their money work for them in what we feel will be a customized and stress-free way. Our platform was designed to make investing more accessible.
Emergence of robo-advisors
According to Deloitte, the AUM for robo-advisory services would reach $16 trillion by 2025.
In the meantime, 73% of UK investors think ChatGPT will be able to provide sound financial guidance in the future. According to the Investor Index, an annual assessment of UK investors, 42% of younger investors (aged 18 to 34) say they have already utilized an AI chatbot for guidance.
According to senior strategist Sarah Nunneley of AML Group, “the ‘new’ generation of investor is already here and they are looking at what is on offer, weighing their options, and it seems Robo-advice and AI are coming out on top.”
