Investing is a tricky art that requires a lot of finesse and research. But what if we told you it can be done all with math and science? These days, people can find love through matchmaking algorithms, so why not put that math to use for our money? Robo-investing is an up-and-coming domain that uses proven algorithms to change the way we see the market. Here's why sometimes, robots can be better than people.

1. Robots don't need a high paycheck.

Wealth managers and financial advisors come with a hefty price tag, so that's why we suggest going digital. With less people to pay, robo-advising firms can transfer those savings to you.

2. Get out of exorbitant starting requirements.

Hiring a financial investment advisor could mean that you have to have minimum assets of $500,000.00. This makes investment feel like an elite club. Robo-investing opens the playing field to all levels of investors.

3. Still maintain the human touch.

Robo-investing doesn't completely kick humans out of the equation. Check out the variety of firms available where you can talk to a real-live human if need be.

4. Trust math.

Algorithms. You might not know (or care to know) how they work, but they do. Robo-investors use the same resources as human financial planners in terms of portfolio management.

5. It's simple to use online.

Ah, the Internet. If you're young and savvy, a robo-investor can make everything easier to automate your investments online so you can make money from your couch.

6. There's an app for that.

Check out these handy apps to help you manage your own investments on the go.

7. There are a ton of choices out there.

Everyone is unique, and therefore, we all feel comfortable with different investing strategies. For a full list of top rated robo-investors with a variety of cool features, check this out.

While some of us fear the robot apocalypse, investors should embrace this digital enterprise. Technology is stronger than ever, and now it can make us money.

I’ve been feeling very British lately. Not in a Union-Jack-obsessed, “Keep Calm and Carry-On” way. I went through that phase in 2012 with everyone else… no thank you. And it’s not even a surge of patriotism catalyzed by the Queen dying — I’m firmly team Diana and team Meghan.
