Introduction

Managing finances is time consuming, but everyone has to do it. Today, investors visit multiple websites to track their financial accounts.

1787fp’s financial software makes it easier for investors to work towards financial independence and take control of their finances.

Why We're Doing This

Wealthy clients and institutions have had access to the best advisors, money managers, and processes for years. After I obtained my CFP® license four years go, I thought that there had to be a way to offer young emerging affluent clients the same systems that wealthy clients and large institutions have used for years to build and maintain wealth. I thought, “Why should only the rich have access to wealth-building secrets, processes, and tools?”

1787fp was founded at the University of Virginia Darden School of Business to democratize the financial planning and financial services. At 1787fp, we want to help the next generation of investors build financially independent futures!

What We Do

We build software that makes it easy for consumers to track their finances, manage investments, and make mobile payments.

Problem

To track their assets and liabilities and to monitor progress, investors today use the services of multiple companies and vendors for financial planning advice, investment advice, investment management, financial education, investment research, and banking.
