Can you explain why a live advisor is a better option for financial advice than a low-fee, low-minimum automated advisory service?

It all depends on what you're looking to get out of your advisement. If you're new to investing and have lots of questions, a robo advisor probably won't give you the detailed information you might need. If you have a good strategy and just need to make your dollar go as far as possible, an automated service could be the perfect solution. 

Whether you go with a live advisor or a virtual option doesn't really depend on the types of funds you're investing in, as you should be able to get whatever you want through either type of service. That's what's most important - make sure your advisor, flesh and blood or otherwise, can help you meet your personal goals and invest your dollars as you see fit. If a robo advisor can do that for less money than a real person, feel free to go with that option. If the robot isn't able to meet your needs, find a person who can.
