Comparing DIY investing with robo advisors  


Remember fess can really impact your portfolio value over the long term, especially if investment performance is not enough to offset them.


Think about whether you’re happy to perform in line with the market and if you have specific investment requirements.

Do you need financial advice or guidance?  

Think about whether you need advice and help with complex financial planning or guidance from a trusted source to make your own investment decisions. 

DIY investing

With DIY platforms you are in control of your own investment decisions.

Robo advisor

With robo advisors your savings are invested automatically for you based on what the robot determines is best.

Look for DIY platforms that don’t charge a percentage account fee, so if your portfolio grows your fees don’t grow too. Check if your robo advisor charges a percentage fee that grows as the value of your portfolio does.

If there’s specific financial planning help you need, does the robo provider charge extra for this?

Being able to choose your investments means you have the opportunity to perform better than the market.

You can also control which companies you invest in, which helps ESG minded investors.

Robo advisors are not necessarily designed to beat the market. Many invest in ETFs which are designed to track the market. Check if your portfolio is growing after fees are included.
DIY platforms give you guidance to help you understand your investment options including: what to invest in, how much and which account to use. Robo advisors will invest your savings automatically based on its assessment of your circumstances. Double check any extra financial planning needs are also catered for.
