Discovering Micro-savings

But, what is
Micro-savings?

Micro-savings, an innovative financial practice, simplifies the savings process through simple rules and effective tools. It is based on the principles of behavioral finance, which explore how psychological and social aspects influence our economic decisions.

Its main objective is to cultivate the habit of saving and facilitate the achievement of long-term goals without requiring excessive effort or large financial outlays.

By taking advantage of technology, microsavings provide us with constant support and practical guidance, paving the way to a more solid financial health.

Day after day, microsavings demonstrates its ability to improve people’s financial stability and provide affective assistance in managing personal expenses. Its focus on accessibility and simplicity makes it an invaluable tool for any individual seeking to strengthen their financial situation.

Goal - based planning

COCO {Auto Savings}

The first step is to establish the financial goal that will guide us in automating our savings. The list of goals is as broad as our imagination; you can choose between saving for a trip, buying a house, paying for college or creating an emergency fund. The key is to define clear and realistic goals.

The user can set his or her own goals or choose from among those generated automatically by artificial intelligence, following analysis of his or her financial habits. For example, if the user spent 400 euros on purchases during the Christmas campaign last year, the system can propose this micro-savings objective for the following Christmas season and thus amortize it over time.

Benefits

Users define savings goals for travel, housing, education or emergencies.

The AI suggests goals based on the user's financial habits. For example, if you spent €400 at Christmas, it can suggest a similar savings goal.

Once the goals have been established, the system facilitates the automatic transfer of funds to achieve them.

Automatic Rules
