In the financial industry, banks are opening themselves to robo advisory, an algorithm-based service supporting private clients’ investment decisions. Based on our access to a recent data set of 11,302 clients from a leading German robo advisory provider, we have the unique opportunity to analyze how clients react to algorithm-based services in contexts with high uncertainty and risk.
