When a recent National Institute on Retirement Security report found that 66 percent of young people have zero dollars amassed for retirement, the need for financial tools catered to the millennial generation grew. The best method for combat? Phone apps.
You can officially toss out your piggy bank and, when you come across that annual $10 in the pocket of your winter coat, invest that windfall with a little help from someone smarter than you: Robots.
After a simple download and link up with your bank account, the following apps will have your money making money. They can unlock that retirement plan you’ve been delaying, the vacation to France you hope to take in five years, or your future dream home, all while you're out grinding.
Each offers a unique advantage (like cryptocurrency, budgeting or stocks) and they all deserve a place on your home screen.
