Our mission is to help households manage their finances with ease and confidence.
At this website you'll find blog posts
and financial calculators
on the subject of personal finance.
At heart we are software makers with passion and experience in personal finance.
We are not out to sell you any type of investment or loan,
though we will provide lots of unbiased commentary on these topics!
Wealth Meta is currently in beta.
In the near future we plan to launch a set of apps that will make it a breeze to
organize your finances, track net worth, and plan for a solid retirement.
If that interests you please register
with us to be notified as they are released.
We believe that managing finances should be easy, quick, and secure.
At the same time, in the computerized age we live in,
we feel it is important to keep a critical eye on the banks and brokerages
who hold our money.
Our core values are:
- Learning - we are out to promote financial literacy in our society.
As you probably noticed, there is a tremendous amount of 'sales material'
related to investments and finance out there.
In our view, almost all of it is designed to make someone else money
and leave you with less of it.
There is no 'free lunch' on Wall Street,
but there are ways to avoid being someone else's lunch.
Our goal is to help people understand the positive side
of finance and recognize gimmicks, excessive fees, and hidden risk that are so common.
- Ethics - we put our users first.
We are not financial advisors, so we won't ever sell
you an investment strategy, stock portfolio or any kind of
get rich quick scheme.
In addition, all our materials and tools
are presented in an unbiased, raw truth kind of way.
- Growth - when it comes to managing your finances, growth is good,
especially when it is compound growth! For you that is based on how much
you earn vs spend, and where you put the difference.
- Thoroughness - we believe it is best to make decisions based on
the whole picture.
In the financial world it is common practice to gloss over
inconvenient details like the total cost of a loan,
or a fund's poor performance in past years.
Our tools and commentary aim to point these things out.
- Security - related to our ethics core value above,
we believe in conducting financial life in such a way as to
avoid identity theft and keep private information private.
