Recently, the Joint Committee of the European Supervisory Authorities requested comments on a Discussion Paper regarding automation in financial advice. The debate centers on whether the three ESAs need to adopt measures, if any, in order to promote "the safety and soundness of markets and convergence in regulatory practice." The Discussion Paper presented a preliminary assessment of the main characteristics of automated financial advice tools as well as their potential benefits, costs, and risks.
