We’ve raised $7M in funding to help you reach financial freedom
It’s a big day for us at Playbook! We’ve raised $7M in Series A funding, led by Telstra Ventures, with support from our founding venture studio Atomic. The world has changed a lot since we first launched Playbook in 2021, and the new funding will help us expand our offering accordingly.
It’s more important than ever for people to start doing the right things with their money early on. Simply connect your bank account, and we find missed opportunities to build wealth. Our app helps people uncover tax advantages, and avoid up to 35% in taxes by maxing out tax advantaged accounts. Think 401(k), Traditional IRA, Roth IRA, HSA etc. Then, based on your finances, we craft a holistic, customized financial plan that is fully automated. Your investments should be smart, adaptive, and perfectly dialed into your plan. We help you do that with customizable risk profiles and multiple, unique portfolios.
“Playbook’s focus on educating, simplifying and automating long-term wealth building for gen Z and millennials has democratized financial planning for a new generation of consumers who have largely been ignored by incumbents. The company is fundamentally different from other personal finance apps and is the first to truly consider the complete financial picture – income, spending, taxes, retirement, saving, and investing and executing on a personalized, financial plan. Playbook is well on its way to becoming a generation-defining tool.” – Yash Patel, General Partner, Telstra Ventures
