The Benefits of Robo Advisors

Robot Types On LaptopWhen it comes to online investment management, robo advisors, or digital advisors, have become increasingly popular. At HighPoint Advisors, LLC, we provide advanced wealth management through a proprietary online platform that offers all the benefits of robo-advisory services, along with the advantages of having a dedicated financial advisor to consult with when the need arises. To learn more about our guided wealth portfolios (GWPs), including our user-friendly robo advisor, contact us today.

Benefits of Robo-Advisory Services

Robo advisors are automated platforms that use algorithms to recommend portfolios based on the input of personal information. Thanks to their technology-driven nature, robo advisors offer the following benefits:

  • They’re low-cost. For budget-conscious consumers, robo advisors provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional financial advising services. However, it’s important to note that the low cost reflects a reduced level of personalized service. If you have a significant amount of money to invest or specific concerns, traditional advisory services may be more appropriate.
  • They’re easy to use. Robo advisors are built for the tech-savvy consumer, making them extraordinarily user-friendly. Best of all, they provide 24/7 access to your accounts.
  • Some grant access to a personal advisor. For instance, HighPoint Advisors’ robo advisor isn’t your run-of-the-mill digital investment app. While it offers the same low-cost, easy-to-use services that you’ve come to expect, it also connects you to your own personal advisor. That means if you have specific questions or issues, you can get the help you need from a professional.
  • They’re great for young investors. Growing up during the Great Recession and inundated with student debt, it’s no secret that young adults don’t always have an easy path to good financial management. However, robo advisors are a great entry point into investment management, because of their low platform fees and heavy reliance on tech.
  • They have low minimum balances. Even with a small net worth, you can begin investing with a robo advisor. At HighPoint Advisors, our minimum is set at just $5,000.
