10.25 – 11.25: Panel debate – (Round table)  

The view of ROBO advice from the perspective of The PFS, EFPA and the providers.  The chairman will use this session to look to draw out from the panel how existing advisers should react to the existence of ROBO and how they should use it and interact with it. 

This session will cover the issues around the advice gap, the targeting of potential customers, the issues around advice that needs to be “whole of market” and therefore is Robo better or worse than a human adviser.

11.45 – 12.45: Panel debate – Threat and opportunity. 

The Chairman will use this session to drill down into the threats to the consumers from not taking advice and whether the ROBO option is better than no advice. 

The danger from using ROBO advice that could lead to Scams and how the regulator will look to protect the public. The opportunity for small firms to increase their customer base via Robo and how this can lead to future interaction with clients, and how this will increase the geographical range for advisers. 

How is Robo going to impact on the expat community and advisers who currently offer advice to clients who may have to comply with a variety of different national regulators.
