The Mission

Our mission is to build a money management tool that is easy to use, yet powerful enough to effect necessary changes in people's money habits. We believe there is no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to managing money. We also believe a good money manager doesn't simply mean automatically generating pretty charts. A good money manager adapts to a user's needs, gives them control and flexibility to customize it as needed, and delivers insightful, actionable advise to help plan for the future.

At Buxfer, our product development philosophy is guided by these principles:

  • Be flexible, yet easy to use.
  • Provide powerful analytics and deep insights into money habits.
  • Deliver real-time, actionable advise for changing user behavior.
  • Encourage proactive planning and goal-setting for the future.
