Are fintech apps the future of investing?

The digital age allows users to access the world online. Imagine banking or investing anytime, anywhere, anyplace. Open an app on your mobile, and you can save, invest, or buy crypto. There is no intermediary, with fees often lower or free. It makes sense, doesn’t it? The world of personal finance and financial services has changed forever as fintech apps make life easier, with no mess or fuss.

The last decade has seen leaps and bounds in new fintech (financial technology) for online users, offering features like mobile banking, personal financing and credit, and financial services. Many mobile apps have even replaced the traditional bank and their online digital banking app. 

One of the best technological advancements has been in savings and investment apps, giving online users access to financial services such as funds and investments usually only available through a financial services company.

Are traditional financial services still relevant if we can get the same services with a mobile tap? 

Fintech technology and development do make personal finance easier for us to invest and save our money, but we make all decisions and choices of funds and services, whether we have the expertise or not. 

There is no advisor guiding us on our financial journey. 

Robo-advisors provide automated, algorithm-driven planning services with minimal supervision. However, they are best suited for straightforward investing rather than more complex issues. They are not expected to replace human wealth managers but rather allow and aid them to focus on specific tasks while the robot advisors do other work, such as data entry.  

Each person’s financial journey is unique, and only a traditional financial advisor can best guide and help with the development of a plan to become financially independent and have enough to retire.
