Abstract:There are many different robo advisors and several different investment strategies that they can employ. These different strategies and their results can be explored and compared to each other. The robo advisor market has seen a steady growth since its inception. The global focus on sustainable investment practices has also increased during this time. This makes the combination of robo advisors and sustainable investment an interesting and relevant research topic. Previously, research has been done to compare robo advisors with each other on a quantitative and qualitative base. However, no research has been done that uses a sustainable investment strategy versus a conventional investment strategy as the basis for a quantitative and qualitative comparison between robo advisors. This research aims to fill this gap by performing a comparison between a sustainable and a conventional robo advisor, Peaks and Finax respectively. Process, content and results are the three aspects that were identified as the framework for the comparison. The results indicate that there are differences and similarities between the sustainable and conventional robo advisors. However, whether the differences can be attributed to the different strategies cannot be conclusively stated.
