Personal Financial Management

Save for your future. Save for your dreams.

Setting up financial goals for yourself is just as important as establishing a budget.

Whether you’re hoping to buy a home, take a vacation or even head back to school, bring your big, exciting financial goals into focus with Personal Financial Management.

The tools within the PFM help you calculate your net worth, set budgets, view your spending habits and trends and set up a debt payment plan.

Spending

The spending tool helps you stay on top of your expenses and ensures transactions are properly organized. Your spending habits are organized in a pie chart for you to easily see your smallest and largest expenses. Seeing your expenses broken down allows you to choose where you can cut back, so funds can be used elsewhere.
