About FinanceBuzz

4 minute read | 5/16/19May 16, 2019

We help you make moves in life.

At FinanceBuzz, our mission is to help you get ahead with your finances. We know that money isn’t everything and some people have more than others. We believe it’s not what you have, but what you do with it.

With an ethos of financial empowerment and a strong sense of community, we share information in a way that’s easy to understand and gives you the knowledge to make smart financial decisions with confidence.

Our ultimate goal? Democratize financial independence. Not just for the select few, but for all.

The FBZ Community

Our name is FinanceBuzz, but friends call us FBZ.

The FBZ community is a big part of who we are and what we stand for. By connecting with people who share many of the same values, the world of personal finance doesn’t have to feel as overwhelming—or taboo—to talk about.

Our Values

  • Be curious
  • Always look for opportunities to learn
  • Pay it forward and share knowledge with others
  • Respect other people and our earth
  • Dream big and believe hard work pays off
  • Strive for a better life (financially and in all ways)
