The Personal Finance series with Warren Ingram

Is the investment industry about to be ‘Ubered’?

Is the investment industry about to be "Ubered" by the rise of new technology?

Fifteen years ago the idea of people trading online (and not talking to a stock broker) was inconceivable – now it is the way that most people interact with the stock market.

Fifteen years ago most people did their banking at a physical branch - now we do everything possible to stay out of the branch (initially through online banking and now through smartphones).

Not much has changed in South Africa since these initial innovations, until recently.

Now we see the rise of low cost access to shares via platforms like Easy Equities, Satrix Now and potentially some new stock exchanges that aim to slash the cost of trading dramatically.

Will the JSE respond to these challenges by making it cheaper for private investors?

Or will the JSE try to protect current profits and eventually go the way of Kodak?

What about the rise of "robo-advisors" in the USA and now South Africa?

Can technology finally make financial advice more accessible to a greater portion of South Africans?

Or is it just another way for product providers to cut out advisors in order to gain a greater percentage of the "food chain"?

Ray White (in for Bruce Whitfield on “The Money Show”) interviewed Warren Ingram, Financial Advisor at Galileo Capital, for his weekly personal finance feature.
