Making state-of-the-art goal-based planning easy-to-understand and available to everyone.
Understanding and planning your future is complicated. To make good decisions and achieve your life goals, you can spend days doing research on the internet, build your own spreadsheets, and still don't get the complete picture and really know whether you are on track. Alternatively, you can rely on expensive advisors that might be more interested in selling products rather than helping you make good decisions.
We founded Symonda to give you a third option. As experts and researchers with PhDs in finance, we made in-depth analyses of our own families using state-of-the-art models and technology. We wanted to make our expertise available to everyone, so we created Symonda: an easy-to-use app that provides guidance and does all the hard work for you, but at the same time leaves you in control. This way, you can experiment, come up with a plan, and make good decisions to achieve what is important to you.
