In the second episode of Millennial Money Matters, we chat to Matthew Ford, CEO of personal savings app Pariti. Pariti is unique within this sector for having branched away from categorising a user's spending, to focus instead on simplicity. The app scans a user's bank accounts and produces a single number, and that number is what the user can afford to spend within a given timeframe. Pariti also helps users to get debt-free by identifying pain points (like expensive credit card debts) and suggesting ideas for consolidating those debts.
