Russia’s National Financial Association issues first roboadvisory accreditation

Russia’s National Financial Association, a self-regulatory organization, has issued its first official accreditation to VTB Capital Investment under a program to provide individual investment recommendations to users via roboadvisors. Roboadvisors help clients form individual investment portfolios of stocks, bonds and index fund shares. After filling out a questionnaire, the roboadvisory service determines the client’s risk appetite and other specificities and then recommends a set of securities. The service also monitors the status of the portfolio in real time and makes suggestions for more profitable securities.The company expects that more than 150,000 clients will take advantage of the roboadvisory service.
