Marion Laboure is an associate of the department of economics at Harvard University. She has public and private sector capital experience, having worked at Barclays, the Luxembourg Central Bank and the European Commission. Her research is focused on public finance, monetary economics and financial technology.
At CES, Laboure will examine how ‘robo-advisors’ offer an opportunity to democratize finance and decrease wealth inequality in Europe. These algorithmic investment advisors stand to disrupt the wealth management sector through their low-cost, accessible business models. However, the entrance of traditional wealth managers into the robo-advisor market could threaten this disruption. Laboure will explore the socioeconomic implications of digital wealth management solutions across Europe.
