From Robo Adviser Returns Report November 2017
Robo Adviser Returns
Today we’ve published our second quarterly report on robo returns. We want to talk to customers about this new(ish) way of investing. And we want to tackle the two questions we always get. How much could I make? And how much could I lose? We also want to show returns against benchmarks which mean something. So, we’ve picked a well-known cash account because our research tells us that people compare investments to cash.
Over the last 12 months we can see that the average ‘Spicy’ portfolio grew from £5,000 to £5,525 compared to £5,000 invested the FTSE 100’s £5,560. The average Medium portfolio grew to £5,288. And over the last 12 months the least risky portfolios returned less than the Santander 123 account.
