Passive Investing Becoming Widespread in Wealth Management and P2P

New research from Equifax Touchstone shows that automated investment has become a wider trend in P2P and wealth management; 82% of 141 surveyed investment advisors said they have a consistent approach to allocation and monitoring for clients; P2P platforms like Funding Circle recently removed self selection and instituted an autobid process for investors; John Driscoll, director at Equifax Touchstone, tells AltFi, “This approach helps strike the right balance between risk and return, particularly important in a world of increased market volatility.”; according to Driscoll the FCA has been a main driver of this trend to ensure risk is maintained correctly for investors.
