Depending on the exact nature and scope of regulated activities to be carried out by the corporation, the provision of automated digital advisory service may require a licence from the SFC to carry out Type 1 (dealing in securities) and Type 4 (advising on securities) regulated activities. A corporation providing asset management services would typically require a licence by SFC to carry out Type 4 (advising on securities) and Type 9 (asset management) regulated activities.1

If the corporation is to provide robo-advice directly to clients online through technology tools, Chapter 4 of the SFC Online Guidelines would apply, according to which the robo-adviser should comply with various rules regarding the provision of sufficient information to clients, client profiling, system design and development, supervision and testing of algorithms, adequate resources and rebalancing.1
