About WealthUp: WealthUp is a place for people of all ages to learn about money, discover their financial selves, and develop the skills they need to grow their nest egg.
In today’s rapidly evolving technological landscape, the financial world has seen an unprecedented growth in the number of tools designed to help manage money effectively. Despite these advancements, a constant remains: Most people lack essential financial literacy.
This is where WealthUp steps in.
Originally launched in 2018 as Young and the Invested and rebranded to WealthUp in late 2023, the site aims to bridge this knowledge gap by offering extensive resources and expert information and analysis to those eager to navigate their financial journey with confidence.
I’m Riley Adams, CPA, and I’m the founder and CEO of WealthUp (formerly Young and the Invested). I built the site to help Americans fix one of the costliest problems most people suffer from: poor financial literacy.
Think about these figures: Around 60% of Americans carry credit card debt, with almost 25% admitting to sinking further into debt monthly. Additionally, approximately 5 million U.S. citizens are delinquent on their mortgage payments, while the average college graduate is burdened with a substantial amount of student loan debt.
Despite these alarming statistics, only less than one-third of children in public schools are offered financial literacy courses. This marks some slight progress from years past, considering an even smaller percentage of adults had access to such education during their schooling years.
WealthUp aims to change that by providing clear, accessible information about all aspects of personal finance, including:
- Real estate
- Financial tools
- And much more
When a reader visits the website, they’ll be able to learn just about anything—from teaching a child about money and finding the best debit card for a teenager to opening a retirement account and figuring out how to save on their taxes.
Importantly, no matter how complex the topic is, WealthUp helps readers understand these concepts with plain-English articles and practical examples.
WealthUp also goes above and beyond by also providing objective ratings and reviews of financial products, from debit and credit cards to brokerage accounts to tax software, and more. Readers can understand the information—and trust it—because the site presents data in a number of ways, including detailed write-throughs, quick pros and cons, and comparison tables. This in turn helps each reader wisely choose the best apps, software, and services for them.
WealthUp can also help readers keep up with the latest advances in financial technology. The overlap between technology and finances has never been greater—and I believe the only way people of any age can get ahead is by knowing how to not only manage their money, but successfully navigate the latest financial apps and software.
What sets WealthUp apart—and has drawn millions of readers to its articles—is the site’s commitment to serving its readers. The site boasts hundreds of articles that are regularly updated to reflect the most recent information, product updates, and consumer perks.
Our site is an invaluable resource for children, teens, adults—anyone looking to get a firmer grip on their finances. So whether a reader is looking to take their first step toward a financial education, or sharpen up their existing skills, WealthUp is one of the first places they should visit.
