There are essentially two strategies for boosting your savings and investments: Increase your income and cut your spending.
Whether you’re a young adult ready to start saving for retirement, a 50-something ready to pay off your debts or you’re just living on a fixed income, these two things are super essential.
PiggyVest aims to help you do that while guiding you through the process!
Every month, we shine a spotlight on one saver, asking them questions about their savings and investment culture and how the product is specifically helping them shape how they spend and save for future responsibilities.
So, here we go. Meet Yewande.
