If big banks’ top wealth managers are worried about the coming wave of robo-advisers, they’re not showing it.
“I don’t believe, at the end of the day, that [robo-advisers] are going to capture the high net worth audience. Advice, to me, is still the premium,” said David Satler, COO with Barclays wealth and investment management group.
Satler spoke at SourceMedia’s InVest event in midtown Manhattan Friday, where he was joined by senior wealth management executives from Citigroup and Merrill Lynch.
