Financial Products for Young Professionals
The Young Professionals here at YPFB have a few products that we use get financial information. This list will be updated over time and can always be found on the right side bar.
- Quicken 2006 Premier I use the Premier version because it is able to track my investments, which I do not believe that the Deluxe version will do. Quicken is able to access just about all of my accounts (savings, checking, brokerage, and 401(k)) online, so I do not even need to manually input all of my transactions. For some reason, the company that handles our ESPP does not allow Quicken to access information over the Internet, but that is the only one I have problems with. This program makes it very easy to create a budget, track your finances, and see your net worth. If you really want total control over your finances, I would suggest that you look into Quicken 2006. I was able to get the software on Ebay for about $25, that is a great deal compared to the $75+ they want at retail.
- Money Magazine Great articles, great tips, great advice...great finance magazine. Highly recommended.
- Investopedia Stock Market Game
We currently have a year-long game setup at Investopedia. We are each putting in $5 a month and there is a monthly and a yearly prize for the person that has the best percentage of money made. Lots of fun.
