MARTINSVILLE, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / May 11, 2021 / Backend Benchmarking has published the 19th edition of the Robo Report™ covering the first quarter of 2021.
This edition of the Robo Report™ tracks 91 accounts at 42 different providers and is the most comprehensive analysis of robo advisors available. It also features an interview with Stash CEO Brandon Krieg and an industry review.
After the overwhelming outperformance of growth-style investing in 2020, value stocks outperformed in the first quarter of 2021. 'If investors believe we are in a new regime, robo portfolios with a value tilt, like Schwab's and Betterment's, may be compelling options for the future,' said Ken Schapiro, Backend Benchmarking Publisher.
'If the last twelve months are indicative of the future, robo advisors are not only here to stay but also expanding rapidly,' said David Goldstone, Head of Research for Backend Benchmarking. 'One of the leading independent robo advisors, Betterment, increased its assets under management from approximately $18 billion to $28 billion over the last 12 months.'
