Keeping track of your investments used to be a full-time job. It still can be, if you happen to be a professional broker or financial advisor. But many individual investors are finding that they can save time and money by looking after their investments using one of the many software solutions available online, or as a downloadable app.
If you don’t want to manage your investments manually, using record books and spreadsheets, and you’d rather not pay someone to do it for you, then using expert software is an affordable and hassle-free alternative. The options available range from basic money management platforms to full portfolio management that includes many sophisticated investing and analysis tools. Some are completely free, while others can either be downloaded for a one-off fee or paid for on a subscription basis.
