There was a time in my life where I looked into a crystal ball for advice on my long term financial planning. But now, thanks to LifeWellth, I can instead gaze longingly into my iPad and get the financial counsel I need (desperately, it seems, if I am paying psychics for their input).
Available now at the iTunes store, the LifeWellth iPad app is designed by the creators of a leading long term personal finance advice platform. LifeWellth claims to have worked with over 400 investors and advisors to create the app, and that it provides guidance for purchasing a home, saving for college, retirement or general long term security.
“LifeWellth takes a 360 degree look at your finances and goals and then through the app, helps you set and formulate a customized plan to achieve your goals.” said Founder and CEO of LifeWellth, Francisco Prat, in a statement. “Many consumer investors need secure, independent financial advice and LifeWellth has created the ultimate platform to map out their financial future through specially customized suggestions to reach realistic long-term goals.”
Among the features for the iPad app are: ability to chart your own path independent of an advisor, information privacy since data lives on the device, and control over your financial future achieved by setting goals and tailoring plans to specific needs.
