When you come to a fork in the road, take it. - Yogi Berra
My search for a worthy personal finance tool has taken a detour. Previously in this series of posts, I identified objectives and requirements, made a preliminary choice of tool, and tested on real-life data. The top contender, Mint, acquitted itself well versus my "must have" requirements for minimalist monthly money management.
So naturally, I got greedy: could I have my cake and eat it too? Could Mint also deliver on my bonus requirement of offering up useful investment insights? The short answer: no. So I made like a politician and pivoted... to Personal Capital. It did not disappoint.
