The Budge Platform is a personal finance information management service that allows you to consolidate and track your financial information.

The Budge platform also provides you with a “financial wellness” score that ranks you on a scale of 100. This score is meant to provide a simple way to gauge how well you are managing personal finances.
The Platform may also present you information relating to third party products or services that you may be interested in. The Services may also provide you general tips, recommendations and educational material.
