Project Description


FinVenger will change the way Australian youth plan their HELP debt repayment and secure their future by efficiently planning their investment strategies towards their financial goals.

From the dataset; we have observed the presence of defaulters even in the age group of 60+ years. This can be inferred as an outcome of limited financial knowledge and lack of awareness with regards to financial planning in a person’s early stages of their career.

There is a definite need for a digital platform, where by using predictive and adaptive analysis of a person’s financial history, they are able to obtain an overview of their overall financial health in terms of assets, debts, spend figures, investment potential and their own risk appetite that is derived using multiple parameters.

Our solution - FinVenger; is an omni-channel digital solution that leverages the historically available datasets and provides a detailed personalized solution that enables today’s Youth to not only invest smartly, but also see a timeline view of the projected financial figures along with the risk analyzers.

AI/ML based saving and investment features will enable the user to start repaying the debt voluntarily even before they reach the payable slab, so that the time required to repay the debt is reduced and the user becomes debt-free earlier.

We also provide access to a team of highly recommended financial mentors who are available to guide the user throughout their journey.

So, start saving - start investing and SECURE YOUR FUTURE!!!
