There has been much talk and interest around "robo-advice". But exactly what it is, what it offers and what it can provide to individuals is less clear and varies widely between different offerings.

The use of the term 'advice' may also be a misnomer as it is likely that many of the current offerings will probably be guidance rather than advice.

The Finance & Technology Research Centre comparison website, Digital Wealth Insights, seeks to compare 18 different providers of "robo-advice" without  judgement or conclusion and may help to shine some well-needed light on this as yet much talked about but very unclear area.
