Westpac CEO Brian Hartzer expects banks to focus on using automated solutions to provide personal financial advice in future, due to the high cost of providing such services. Hamilton Wealth CEO Will Hamilton agrees that so-called robo-advice may be the only option for banks if they are to continue to offer financial advice on a large scale. Hartzer adds that consumers will still be able to pay for bespoke personal finance advice via boutique firms.
