    Shame that Mint.com is still US-centric only at this stage. Can’t wait for the to open up to international bank feeds etc. although I know that could be a real administrative and maintenance nightmare!

    @Devan – check out pocketsmith.com – definitely not US centric and a little closer to you (and I) than mint is!

    pocketsmith must be better than pickpocket :-)

    Thanks for the tip Ben – PocketSmith looks good!

    BTW Zoli, I believe professional pickpockets were in fact called ‘fingersmiths’ in the old days! How odd :)

    Devan,

    I only know about fingerfood :-)

    My first PFM was Money 99, and my story is pretty much what Zoli describes. I’d love to find something online to replace the spreadsheets and my own memory that I use now; but I have two issues:
    1) budgets always seem to refer to people who spend too much, on the other hand I just want to make sure I set aside enough to pay the electric, mortgage, etc. and I want something that will let me enter these known amounts and tell me how much to set aside each paycheque (not all payments are bi-weekly).
    2) every investment manager I’ve seen so far tracks only capital gains, which is easy to do and generates a ream of stats from which to make nice graphs but misses so many other important considerations – like revenue stream (in my case).

    Also, any idea if the death of MS Money also means the death of the online MSN Money?

    And do you know of any online PFM’s that cater to Canadians and their investments?

    I will recommend using Desktop Budget to manage personal finances and my investment portfolio. Its the best, free, offline personal finance software I have seen so far.

    [..] I’m sure as hell lucky to havebet on Mint when Microsoft Money died… but to be honest it was a flip of a coin decision, Wesabe, the other web-based personal finance management program looked just as attractive.   Good product, perfect pedigre, strong VC funding.   Now Wesabe is in the [..]
