Why Excel based planners?
Because our downloadable planners are Excel spread-sheets, there is no need to download and setup new software. Budget planning should be simple, fast and painless- if a budget planner cannot offer these characteristics, then users will find themselves dreading the whole planning process. We aim to avoid that.

Comprehensive: Unlike online calculators (limited by load time, and web page constraints) our download-able Excel calculators and
planners were developed with detail in mind.  The greater the detail, the higher the level of accuracy and understanding.

Affordable: One time fee of $9.95 - no monthly fees! Compare to other financial planners.  Secure credit card payment (privacy policy)

Understand your financial assumptions:
An investment plan is only as good as the assumptions used. We can not stress enough the importance of understanding the variables and assumptions you use when building a investment plan. A slight overestimation of investment returns can have an enormous impact on whether or not your investment goal is reached.

When building an investment plan, save two versions- one with medium risk and one with low risk (low investment returns, etc.) This will prepare you for the worst, while educating you on the sensitivity of long term financial planning.

Money Back Guarantee:
If for some reason you are not pleased with our budget planner, just let us know and we'll refund your money right away- we only want satisfied customers.



Don't put off building a solid investment plan: Building multiple scenarios and understanding how each variable effects your overall investment plan can be a daunting task. As a result, many shy away from spending the proper amount of time into a detailed plan and resort to the high level online investment calculators; or even worse, they put the whole planning process off completely. Don't fall into that trap- start planning properly now, not tomorrow.
