Fingym is the gym for people who want to get fitter when it comes to day-to-day finances and tax.
Details about Fingym
Why do so few people put real thought into their personal finances? After all, it’s actually remarkably easy to get a grip on expenses and contracts, increase the amount of ready cash available for everyday use, and put money aside for asset creation and pension planning. Be that as it may, lots of people simply can’t get on top of their finances – and that is something Fingym wants to change.
The start-up’s approach is to produce short, snappy, informative video courses in financial management. Working from a studio near Hamburg University, Fingym is essentially offering online training to everyone who wants to get fitter when it comes to day-to-day finances and tax; for just €100, consumers can access a special training course on everyday finances, while the course for personal tax returns is available for around half that. The FinTech also runs its own magazine with a weekly newsletter offering a range of free finance tips on how to make savings on a day-to-day basis – all of it in an accessible, easy-to-understand format. Fingym’s own estimate is that, depending on the course they take, most consumers can find up to €2,000 extra annually which can then be used for other, nicer things.
