It seems that pretty much everyone who deals with personal finance has decided that this is the day for announcements. They’re right. The stock market seems to be ready for another upward rally, and the overall interest in investing, saving, or simply making the most out of the situation has never been bigger.
Mint, the personal finance site that tries to connect most financial aspects of your life in one well-rounded, free package, has announced several updates today. The first of which is that after a full year of testing it’s out of beta.
The service is also launching a bunch of new features. Originally, Mint was all about personal finance; it expanded its scope to investment 5 months ago, and this functionality, which was only available to a small portion of users, is now open to everyone. It includes a full featured 401(k) management center, portfolio asset allocation info, and comparison of your investments against major indexes such as S&P and Dow Jones.
Although there are many finance-related sites out there, with these new additions Mint now really offers nearly everything in one place; from tracking your daily expenses to evaluating your stock portfolio. Of course, it still cannot match specific applications (some of which are completely free when you register with an online broker) for portfolio management or fundamental analysis of stocks, but it can be an important starting point of your financial life.
