How is your Robo Advisor better than a human advisor?

Being a software driven adviser, our algorithm is capable of analyzing tens of thousands of schemes available in the market and prepare a personalized portfolio for you. Analyzing these many schemes is beyond human capabilities. Further, process of financial planning process is a very tedious process which involves significant efforts from a human due to which human advisers are bound to charge a very high amount for their services. Since there is no human intervention in our Robo Adviser, we are able to offer services better than a human financial planner at much cheaper cost.

Just like any other thing in life, nothing in certain in financial markets too. We apply the best possible techniques to recommend you a portfolio so that you achieve your financial goals. But, markets might change drastically over the years and your investments might not perform as expected initially. We minimize that risk by regularly rebalancing your portfolio.

Why do you charge money for advisory when most of the other companies advise for free?

As they say, "there is no free lunch". No service is truly free. Most companies out there are Mutual Fund Distributors registered with AMFI. These companies sell you regular plans of mutual funds which earns them distributor commission. The commission to them is paid by the mutual fund company from the investments you make with the company. These commisions can be as high as 2.5% of your investments per year. To avoid distributor's commission, you must invest through direct plans of mutual funds. Naturally, distribution companies are more inclined towards selling the schemes which makes them more commissions. 7Prosper is not a Mutual Fund Distributor. We are SEBI Registered Investment Advisers. We only recommend direct plans of Mutual Funds thereby saving you the hefty commissions you end up paying through regular plans. Hence, to act in your best interest we charge you an upfront fees which keeps our engine running to help you with your personal financial matters.
