Quick review of Geezeo

I held out on jumping onto the new web-based financial organizers bandwagon for long enough. I decided to try Geezeo because, so far, they're the only site with the capability to add investment accounts.


I was able to easily add my main banking information, but when I tried to enter my ING information, it didn't recognize the bank (I think they did have ING Direct - CN, though... but isn't that Canada? In any case, it didn't work).

After "finding" my retirement account information, it never logged it onto my page. Weird.

I thought they also gave you the ability to add student loans, but apparently that feature isn't available yet.


Basically, the way it's functioning for me, it's just a really convoluted method of checking my bank balance. But they already have a website for that. When they add student loans, maybe I'll be back.

Hi, Sorry to hear about the trouble with some of your accounts. We're working on ING and hoping to have our aggregation back live with them soon.

Student Loans will be back live by tomorrow morning.

If I can be of any assistance please don't hesitate to shoot me an email.
