Should digital wealth management replace a wealth management advisor?
Absolutely not. You should work with a wealth management advisor AND leverage digital wealth management tools in order to keep an eye on your finances. Most high-net-worth individuals want face to face interactions when it comes to their money for the following reasons:
- They appreciate human advice based on experience as opposed to a computer generated algorithm that does not consider factors such as emotion and someone’s willingness to actually implement a recommendation.
- Digital wealth management has a hard time communicating complex financial concepts to someone in a simple manner that they can understand, and therefore be more likely to embrace.
