We’re on a mission to empower everyone to become their own financial advisor. Providing the information and tools you need to invest with confidence.
Finimize was created by people who previously set up $100m businesses, were selected by Forbes to the “30 under 30" list, worked at Barclays, Goldman Sachs, Facebook, Google and many others.Read our culture manifest 🙌
It all started when we had some savings ourselves and couldn’t figure out what to do with them. Everyone tells you to budget and save. But no one tells you what to do after that. You know you should be doing something smart with your money, but who do you listen to? You’ve read about cryptocurrencies, researched robo advisors but when it came down to it, you didn't feel confident in handing over your money. A financial advisor could help you, but you either don’t trust them or can’t afford to pay them.
We dare to envisage a world where you don’t need a financial advisor – much as you no longer need a travel agent thanks to the likes of Expedia. Just as you do with films, restaurants and hotels, we see a world where you consult an independent platform before making any financial decision.
Our first product is our daily newsletter that explains what’s happening in the world of finance in 3 minutes and without any jargon. This has attracted 250,000 readers – but removing financial jargon is just the first step in levelling the playing field. Since then we have expanded our team, and grown our community around the world!
The next step in our mission is making your voice heard by building the “TripAdvisor” for finance. We’ve built this awesome new app where you can read user-generated reviews on a range of financial products, and therefore have the ability to figure out what to do with your money.
We’re on an important journey to revolutionize this industry.
Let's get there together. 💸
