Thanks to a really good book recommended by great pals, Be Your Own Financial Advisor by Warren Ingram; I have been introduced to a wonderful app some of you might know.
If you have not heard of 22SEVEN then read on.
This is a brilliant and SAFE app from Old Mutual that allows you to place all your income and expenses under 1 umbrella. The aim is to get your finances in order and managed in the best way. What I appreciate about this app is three things (girls point of view)
1- It’s easy to look at, follow & use. No complicated accounting eyesores.
2- It is so friendly. Including the support panel they offer. I was able to speak to someone from 22SEVEN who answered all my questions and when I mentioned how impressed I was on his quick response (like 3 seconds) He said ”Thats how we roll here”. I asked Adam’Sven’about the security of having all your banking details and account pins on the app and he sent me a great email reassuring me on their #1 priority SAFETY. He went on to saying …
22seven is as safe as your online banking service. We, along with our partner, Yodlee, make sure your security credentials are completely protected. Yodlee is an international account aggregator that works with over 300 financial institutions worldwide. Security is their business.

He also said …
