In this digital world, more and more services are getting automated by each passing day. Financial advice and portfolio management is no exception. These industries are deploying robo-advisors, which provide online financial advice and automated portfolio management services with the help of computer algorithms.

Niall McCarthy of Statista says the concept is becoming increasingly widespread across the financial world, and according to some analysts' predictions, assets controlled by robo-advisors could grow to over $250 billion by 2020.
