Online Investment Market Grows - but robo just 0.9% of assets today

November 2017

The online investing market is pushing on £200 billion. Are you clear on what your D2C strategy looks like for 2018?

  • The online DIY investing market has grown by 17% over the last calendar year and was £192.4 billion as at Q3 17
  • Market leader Hargreaves Lansdown has actually increased market share to an almost vulgar 43%
  • The disruptive robo advisers have a 0.9% market share today although annual growth has been 133%
  • Anecdotal investor nervousness plays out as cash holdings increase to 9% of all AUA
  • Consolidation in evidence as average account sizes across the board top £50,000
