Which jobs in wealth management can’t be automated/ replaced by robots?

Which jobs in wealth management can't be automated/ replaced by robots?
I have come across this question few times. Below is my response.

1. Portfolio construction: In future, artificial intelligence will be used to make better sense of the vast data available to us, and help us in determining good investment opportunities. However, portfolio construction is a subjective activity, and it is based on an investment methodology that is designed by human perspectives.

So, irrespective of the extent of the usage of technology in portfolio construction, this task will be overseen by investment experts.

2. Client relationship for ultra-high-net-worth-individuals: For individuals with high amount of investible assets, typically more than $100 million, there will be a host of complex wealth management needs such as tax planning, estate planning, succession planning, philanthropy and alternate investments. Automating the processes and decision-making involved while catering to these needs is difficult, and hence such tasks will be handled by domain experts who work with the client relationship team catering to such individuals.
