    What will your future wealth manager look like
    The world of wealth management is changing: customers demand data faster than humans can produce it; expected returns are lower and there is major fee compression. Robots run quant funds and match human returns. They don’t switch off at night, they don’t get emotional and they don’t demand large bonuses. And they get smarter with age – they don’t lose their memory! What will your future wealth manager look like; could it be a cyborg?


Nutmeg takes the best of high-end wealth management, strips out the complexity and cost, and provides it to customers online. Nutmeg’s fees are simple and low, and you need just £500 to start investing.
