Budgets

Not all budgets are created equal. Easily adjust and manage budgets in one place and quickly identify ones that need your attention based on color and size. Get started with an auto-generated budget based on your past spending habits and make changes to fit your lifestyle and stay on track.

Spending and trends

How much do you spend on entertainment every month? With the spending tool, you can quickly identify your biggest expenses and categorize your spending. The trends feature shows you category spending over time and compares it to your income, showing where and when you may need to cut back.

Debt

Pay your debt down faster with Money Management's debt tool. See all your loans and debt in one hub and learn techniques on how you can pay them off in less time and pay less in interest.

Goals

What are your financial goals? Saving for a house, vacation, retirement, or an emergency fund? Goals help you plan for short- or long-term financial ambitions. Set savings, debt payoff, or retirement goals and easily track how much you've saved for each goal.

Net worth

Net worth is the most important value in personal finance as it takes everything into account: what you have and what you owe, as well as what you earn, save, spend, and pay toward debt.

With the net worth tool in Money Management, track and monitor the net sum of all your assets and liabilities. Drill down to see what makes up your gains and losses.

Here’s how to exclude your account:
