PR - ROBO INVESTING AND FINANCIAL GUIDANCE - 130617


Robo- and Cyborg-Investing is still an emerging trend, but one that is growing and evolving rapidly. BETTER FINANCE believes that it can lead to significant benefits for EU citizens as savers and individual investors, and therefore to the real EU economy as a whole, in bad need of a more direct and stronger link between savings and the real assets they are invested in. Already now, the sector is providing significantly lower and more transparent fees, based – as mentioned – on a fee-based business model.
