The Disruptive Impact of FinTech on Retirement Systems

Julie Agnew and Olivia S. Mitchell, Editors
August 2019

Many people need help planning for retirement, saving, investing, and decumulating their assets, yet financial advice is often complex, potentially conflicted, and expensive. The advent of computerized financial advice offers huge promise to make accessible a more coherent approach to financial management, one that takes into account not only clients’ financial assets but also human capital, home values, and retirement pensions. Robo-advisors, or automated on-line services that use computer algorithms to provide financial advice and manage customers’ investment portfolios, have the potential to transform retirement systems and peoples’ approach to retirement planning.
