Everybody needs some financial planning skills to make monetary decisions either on individual basis or family unit. We need to have some knowledge on personal finance’s components such as checking accounts, credit cards, stock markets, consumer loans, insurance, tax planning, etc in order for us to manage and handle better our financial resources and financial risks. To equip readers with better personal financial knowledge, the American global Internet Services, AOL, has just launched a personal finance site called WalletPop.

WalletPop is a spin-off of AOL’s Money and Finance channel. Money & Finance main focus is on business and investing news and tools while WalletPop will cover topics on consumer and personal finance. Readers can get knowledge on money matters such as risk management, debt management, retirement planning, real estate, banking, etc. The site also offers financial applications such as financial calculator to assist users to do financial planning.
