The goal of this work is to clarify some aspects in order to understand Robo-Advisory from the legal point of view, taking into account the determinant uses of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Digital Technologies to the financial services, with a brief and particular focus on the European Financial Market Regulation.
