Dozens of internet based services have been developed in recent years in addition to numerous offerings that have evolved over the last two decades in the so-called robo-adviser industry. Some offer investment services directly to consumers, and others are marketed to advisers and firms as tools for use in their businesses. While some argue high-net-worth relationships are not threatened, we have some evidence of client losses to robo-advisers and some are projecting they will take significant market share going forward.

This session will discuss the history and recent developments in the robo-adviser industry including which offerings are gaining the most traction and how the major custodians are responding including offerings directly to the public and via their respective adviser networks. We will also discuss strengths and weaknesses of the offerings, concerns voiced by the SEC and others, and further discuss the value added proposition in wealth management.
