If the $2 trillion in assets to flow into robo-advisors in the next five years, the majority will go into existing financial institutions, says Mike Sha, chief executive of SigFig. SigFig is a robo-advisor that directly competes with those financial institutions, claiming to oversee $350 billion in assets through data aggregation and analytics. Its assets under management are much lower, about $70 million, according to its ADV, and the 25 basis-point fee on managed accounts is how the firm makes money.
