Software / Apps
- Personal Capital – Personal Capital is a great way to track all of your financial accounts, including banks, investment accounts, loans and credit cards. You can also track your income and spending, your asset allocation, and use a Retirement Checkup analyzer to see how you’re doing with respect to hitting your financial targets.
- Mint – I still prefer Mint (from Intuit) for getting into the nitty-gritty of my spending habits. It is a more customizable solution for categorizing, arranging, and tracking your spending. It also has a great budgeting function.
- Finimize – get the top two stories in the financial world delivered to your inbox or phone every day. An easy way to keep up with what’s going on in the world in less than 3 minutes.
