This is an excellent overview of how financial technology is currently transforming both the practice and business of wealth management and investment management. This book is straightforward to read, and arguments make sense. Sironi discusses things like robo-advisory, goal-based investing, and gamification at multiple levels. Sironi relies on a lot of research and examples so it can be used literally anyone who is interested to actually understand what’s going on in the financial services industry at the moment.
The book contains comparatively little math, so it’s easy to read and digest. The book has a logical structure, and most of the chapters can be read without reading everything else. I highly recommend this book as it’s crucial for the financial services industry, and especially wealth managers, asset managers, and private bankers, to understand why, how and by whom the industry changes in the near future.
