But it turns out that, at least among millionaires, robo-advisors are most popular outside the US and Europe, according to the annual Capgemini and RBC Wealth Management World Wealth Report.
Asked whether they would consider letting a robo-advisor manage some portion of their wealth, high-net-worth individuals, (defined as people with investable assets of $US1 million or more) tended to say yes in Latin America and Asia-Pacific, excluding Japan.

The report also asked wealth managers about the growing popularity of robo-advisors. They didn’t seem as keen on the idea as their clients did.
