Obviously we can't save lives, and we'd never be so audacious as to lay claim to that. As much as we'd like to, we just can't tell you that using Muniy will save you from COVID-19.

Nor can we tell you what to invest in now to guarantee you'll come out of this economic storm with significant upside. We can't even say that you won't have to worry about money.

But what we can do, and what we're all about, is make it easier to do the things you need to do, and reach the goals you set for yourself. We focus on keeping your money healthy, because when your money's healthy, it's a lot easier to put it to work for you.

What do we mean by "healthy money"? Healthy money gives you:

Speed. With uncertainty in the air and the market in turmoil, you need to be able to act and respond quickly to changing circumstances, whether it's making sure money get to people you care about, or moving your own funds around to better match current conditions.

Muniy's digital-native platform, built with the latest technologies and a forward-looking perspective, makes sure that your money moves as quickly as possible to where you need it to go.

Mobility. When we say that Muniy is mobile, we don't just mean a mobile app. It also means that your money is mobile. Even when borders are closed to people, your money still needs to travel. Muniy facilitates cross-border and cross-currency movement for today's interconnected users in a globally-minded economy.

In fact, we're in the process of working with companies right now to help them move money faster and more easily than they previously could, and to empower their team to act more effectively than ever.

Access. Speed and mobility are meaningless if you don't have access to them. Many people, often ones who need it the most, are locked out of the contemporary banking system because of needlessly restrictive or outdated rules. It's important to keep the system safe, but it's also crucial to allow legitimate users to participate.

Fortunately, we've got that covered as well. Working with modern compliance partners, we're able to put technology to work to screen new users with a process that's as easy as taking a selfie.

Here also, we're starting to work with organizations to amplify efforts to put accounts in the hands of people who have been disadvantaged by a lack of access to proper financial services.

Awareness. The best decisions are informed decisions, and Muniy lets you easily see where your money is going. Budget better, knowing exactly what you've been spending on.

Just as importantly, our timely transaction notifications let you know when your money is going, so you're always up to date and can take action when it matters. Notice a suspicious transaction or questionable charge? Address it in the moment.

See all your pending charges, so you never have to guess about where your balance will be three days from now.

Healthy money is confident money, and with all the other things to worry about these days, a little boost in confidence can hopefully make it just a bit easier to get through these times.
