What is AskFinny?

AskFinny is a finance and investment education app that was born out of our own experiences of losing money. We thought we were smart because we knew a thing or two, but we quickly learned that we were not financially fit to make the trades or finance decisions we made before the last recession.

There is too much junk and clutter on the web to make any real sense of how to manage your money. And not everyone feels that professional advice is worth what you pay for it. 75% of Americans say that they are winging it when it comes to their financial future. The risk of not educating yourself on such an important aspect of life is too high!

Our goal is to help you answer your money questions and also become a reliable resource you can use to educate yourself so that you’re not winging it when it comes to your financial health and wellness. We’re on a mission to provide simple tools, guides, and on-the-spot answers to fulfill this gap, and give you the insights you need to make smarter, better-informed decisions.

How do I use AskFinny?

At AskFinny, you can ask us any question about finance and investing. Simply use the ask bar to ask your question. What happens next is, Finny, our bot will try to answer it. If Finny doesn’t know the answer, our human professionals – we call them Finny Pros – will step in.

You can ask any question anonymously, so feel free to ask about your personal financial matters. As a principle, we don’t disclose the identity of the person who asked a question.

We’re also building tools and guides to help you navigate finance and investing. You can see those tools below the ask bar on AskFinny.com. Please visit this web page frequently because we’re launching cool new tools and guides every week.

Who is a Finny Pro?

A Finny Pro is a person who knows a lot about a particular money topic and can answer a question better than Finny, our bot. That person could be you, your neighbor, family member, coworker or a Certified Financial Planner! We believe the best answers can come people who are experienced in finance – and is not a function of their title or formal educational degrees.
