55% of Aussies would trust a robot for financial advice
A study of more than 500 consumers and business leaders around Australia has revealed that the COVID-19 pandemic has increased feelings of anxiety, sadness and fear, and changed who or what Australians trust to manage their money. People now trust robots more than themselves to manage their finances, according to a study by Oracle and personal finance expert Farnoosh Torabi.
The research formed part of a larger study of 9000 respondents across 14 countries, and it revealed that COVID-19 has reshaped the role and focus areas of corporate finance teams and personal financial advisors.

Among business leaders, financial anxiety and stress increased by 94%, while consumer financial anxiety and stress increased by 111%.
