Guide is like a health check for your finances – each week our software automatically scans all of your transactions, analyzes them for dozens of ways you can earn or save more, and helps you make fixes to get on the right path (from paying your debts in the right order to complex HSA/FSA choices, student loan planning, building an emergency fund, saving for retirement and more).
We bring genuine and comprehensive advice and financial peace of mind to anyone, regardless of income level, through beautiful, understandable and powerful software.
We are backed by an impressive roster of investors, part of the LaunchPad LA accelerator program, and partner with Intuit to provide users with secure access to accounts at nearly 19,000 financial institutions.
