How To Handle Investments

July 14, 2023

There is so much more to Ploutos Budget than just budgeting. We have created Ploutos Budget to be your central hub for all of your financial accounts. On top of being able to budget and track your loans, you can also keep track of your investments.

Just like a spending account we can choose to have our investment account be linked or unlinked. A linked investment account will pull in your investment holdings automatically and update them periodically. If you choose to not link your investment account you will just need to add the investment holdings manually and update them periodically on your own.
