《巴伦周刊》发布智能投顾独家排名

日前,《巴伦周刊》(Barron's)与《智能投顾报告》(Robo Report)出版商美国分析公司Backend Benchmarking联合发布了美国智能投顾行业的综述报告《顶级智能投顾公司:独家排名》,报告追踪了智能投顾企业、独立专营公司和自有子公司等28家企业。

Backend Benchmarking的创始人、财务顾问Ken Schapiro在28家智能投顾企业开设了总价值50万美元资金账户,以便于分析公司能够查看各家公司智能投顾产品的性能和变化。工作人员综合考量可能成为行业差异的各种因素,建立了一个评分系统。八个因素中有五个是定性因素,包括透明度、客户体验、利益冲突、人工顾问和财务规划服务。其他三个因素分别是最小账户额度、开销、性能。

以下是排名的具体情况

然而,随着智能投顾行业资产管理规模突破2000亿美元,仍然有三个问题有待解答:

2000亿美元中有多少是原生、尚未接受顾问建议的资产?也许我们只是享受着更好的用户体验、见证了朝着低成本被动化资产管理的转变。正如Lex Sokolin本周在关于加密数字贷款的新闻和见解时所说的那样"想象一下,如果智能投顾占年度新筹集资产的36%,新型银行拥有有36%的新存款,......"

已经吸引了多少"低意向"最终客户,费用是多少?"低意向"客户是指那些不知道该采取什么行动的人,例如,节省多少、借多少钱、投资多少等等。换句话说,这2000亿美元的中,有多少真正和完全"服务欠缺"的客户获得了服务?因为,从购买一个工作人员的服务转为接受智能投顾服务,这意味着服务升级,提高了市场竞争力,但在真正促进民主进程和开放访问方面,没有证据证明起到了作用。

为什么透明度素养方面不见效果?Schapiro的账户曾多次因种种理由被关闭。我们向欧洲的几个独立智能投顾企业提议加入免费的客观投资服务(IBO)并提供实时绩效(匿名)数据来制定指数并使用指数调整模型,也遇到了类似的遭遇。

Barron’s just published a great overview of the US sector with The Top Robo Advisors: An Exclusive Ranking in collaboration with Backend Benchmarking, a US analytics firm and publisher of the Robo Report, who tracks 28 current robo providers, a mix of independent pure plays and legacy-owned subsidiaries. Thanks, Urs Bolt for bringing this to my attention, fresh off the press. Backend Benchmarking publishes a quarterly free report that anyone can sign up for (Aug 18 is the release of the Q2 2018 robo report).

Backend Benchmarking put out their first article on Barron’s in the space, also in 2015 Robo Advisors Take On Wall Street. They highlighted the beginning of the insurgency which had begun in 2010 in Betterment (at the time a voice in the wilderness) and that technology was turning asset allocation models into a commodity service. Fast forward to today and the founder of Backend Benchmarking, Ken Schapiro who is a financial advisor, has spent $500,000 funding accounts at 28 robo providers which allow his analytics firm to monitor performance and changes to the robos’ products. They have created a scoring system for all sorts of factors that maybe differentiators in the space. Five out of the eight factors are qualitative, like transparency, customer experience, conflicts of interest, access to human advisors, and financial planning services.

Performance comparison is presented using their in-house normalized benchmarking which shows Vanguard on the top.

The questions that remain unanswered in my mind, as the sector is crossing the $200 billion AUM, are:

How much of these $200billion was unadvised? Maybe we are simply witnessing a shift to low cost passive with better UX? As Lex Sokolin said when covering news and insights on crypto digital lending this week “Imagine if robo-advisors accounted for 36% of new assets raised this year and neobanks had 36% of new deposits,…” (see here)

How many “Low intent” end customers have been acquired and at what cost? “Low intent” (a term used a lot from Envizage) prospects are those that don’t know what action to take, for example, how much to save, how much to borrow, how much to invest etc. In other words, how many genuinely and fully “underserved” clients are being served in these $200billion? Because, if it is me and you, moving from being served from one incumbent to a robo-service, then this is an upgrade, it is good in terms of increasing the competitiveness of the market, but its impact in terms of genuine democratization and opening access, is not evidenced.

Why hasn’t the culture changed in terms of transparency? Schapiro reports and I believe him, that in several occasions his accounts were shut down with one excuse or another. I have a similar personal experience when we proposed to a couple of standalone robo-advisors in Europe to join the free Investment by Objective service (IBO) and provide real-time performance (anonymized) data towards developing an index and also using that to adjust models – Swiss pictograms for investment performance – Performance Watcher.
