Are you willing to turn to ‘robo-advice’?

 As a result, robo-advice was developed. Do you think it sounds like science fiction? Well, major financial institutions are starting to get in on the action. Royal Bank of Scotland recently announced that 220 of its staff could be replaced by robo advice. The trouble is, there are concerns that all investors could be placed in too broad an investment strategy that does not adequately cater for their investment needs or take into account their tax position, such as a likely inheritance. In addition, the existing online advice propositions still require investors to do a lot of decision making, such as picking which funds they want to be invested in. 

In Spain you are lucky as you still have the opportunity to see a financial adviser without having to pay an up-front fee, thus rendering the service available to everyone. In these worrying and bewildering times it is essential – if you want to make the most of your money – to see a professional to give you guidance.

Perhaps this was the case for one group of British expats who chartered a plane to fly in a large delivery from their favourite curry house in Portsmouth.

James Emery, an aviation assessor for trainee pilots in France, piloted the small aircraft which flew 89 meals from Solent Airport all the way to Bordeaux.

“I’m a chilli addict, “he said, “and an aviation geek, so I thought I would combine my two hobbies to get my favourite meal to me in France.”
