In control of your finances?

This is a sponsored post
Are you? I must admit, I am normally pretty good. I try to keep costs of everything as low as possible. I don't feel particularly in control at the moment because I know I need to be earning more to keep us in the black. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels slightly out of control with costs increasing all the time and income not rising to meet those extra costs. I'd like to have a longer term plan for our personal finances but at the moment, we're living hand to mouth and the future is not on the agenda. Well, not further than a few months anyway.

I can't be the only one. Apparently, 11 million UK consumers don't use a financial advisor, and do their own financial planning. MoneyVista aims to give them a little help by providing a tool to help them create their own plan. You input your income, outgoings, investments and it shows you your current financial position and allows you to plan. It can show you the impact of various financial decisions and you can set and monitor goals.

What I like about this is that there is no advertising on the site for financial products and the business itself, although backed by Royal London, doesn't sell financial services and it won't sell on your data to other companies either. All of which means it comes at a price (£8 pm, £20 per quarter of £75 per year) but you can get the first 30 days free and you only have to give your credit card details if you decide to subscribe.

Have a look at this video (it's only 1.30) which explains how MoneyVista can help with your financial planning. Hope you find it useful. This may be a sponsored post, but I wouldn't feature this if I thought it was of genuine use and something that might actually help rather than try to sell you other things. Why not give it a try?
