Just a lot of mathematics, statistics, demographics, macroeconomics and behavioral economics. :) No guesses. We’ve analyzed almost 100 years of historical data and have determined a number of patterns and trends.
Our model also takes into account various risks, such as an unexpected financial crisis. Our app will help you be ready so you can successfully deal with any unfortunate occurrences.We aren’t fortune tellers. The scenarios don’t take into account the possibility that you’ll win a lottery, receive an inheritance or get a fantastic job promotion.Just keep in mind, our predictions are approximations. The model can sometimes be mistaken because it uses statistical data that’s averaged. We’re also pessimistic. In other words, you may be able to make your $1 million much earlier than predicted. You’re unique. :)
- When you connect your bank accounts, our app analyzes your transactions and financial behavior to determine how you can improve your financial health in the future.
- To predict your future income, we forecast a future inflation rate as well as a net gap-by-gender income change rate, a net income-by-age change rate and other indicators. That’s why we ask demographic questions.
- We determined how the market price of a certain asset type changes on average. The app also predicts how your assets-to-liabilities balance will change over time. It includes the financial and non-financial assets and liabilities you’ll probably have in the future.
- The algorithm predicts thousands of scenarios regarding how your future net worth will change. However, the app determines the three to five best-suited scenarios starting with a negative one and ending up with the best achievable one.
You’ll receive a financial planning status report once a quarter. The report tells you how close you are to achieving your dream, according to the plan, and provides you with personalized suggestions on improving it. The app also asks you to update your assets and liabilities if the information changes. As a result, you’ll get a clear picture of when your dream will come true, what you need to do to accelerate it, and when and how you can achieve your financial goals.
Conceptually, the app shows you what you can achieve by good money management. Then, it gives you a truly dynamic plan that interactively helps you pursue your big-picture goal as well as other financial goals. You don’t need to build a plan. Our app builds it for you. You just select it.Our app bridges the gap between day-to-day money management and long-term wealth management.
