Listener Questions and Comments:

  • Question from Tancray - Do you think the trend toward passive investing will help or hurt options focused advisors?
  • Question from Nick Sassela - I've read a lot about robo advisors encroaching on the domain of the traditional financial advisor. I would think complicated assets like options wouldn't be well-suited to algorithms and machines. Is it fair to say that options then are the silver bullet to the rise of the robo advisors?
