5 apps that will help you manage your money better

In today’s digital age, most people prefer to use online financial services and mobile apps in order to manage their money. It’s easier, faster, and safer than using traditional, paper-based transactions. But how can you upgrade to modern money management? Here are some top apps to help you get your finances sorted.

Bud brings together all your accounts

Bud helps you manage your bank accounts by bringing together all your cards and accounts. In one handy app, you can find a clear overview of your money. Plus, Bud uses unique encryption and security features to make sure your data stays safe, always.

Bud also features a Marketplace where you can find additional financial services, like insurance, mortgages, and pensions. You can even connect your PensionBee pension to Bud, so you only need one app to access all your savings and investment accounts.

Bud uses an intuitive and clean design to make your finances more empowering - and convenient!

Use Coconut to get on top of your freelance finances

Coconut is an alternative banking app for freelancers and self-employed workers. Coconut allows you to set up a business bank account by simply using your phone. Find your incoming funds and expenses in one easy, digital statement - all in the palm of your hand.

Best of all, Coconut is tailored to freelance needs. It helps you to track your business expenses and works out your taxes for you when it’s time to file your return. Throughout the year, you can access a real-time tax assessment estimate, so you know exactly how much you owe at the end of the tax year.

Plus, Coconut will send payment requests and reminders to clients, making sure you aren’t spending precious hours chasing up late payments. Coconut helps self-employed people stay on top of their (often unpredictable) money.
