We all have that one friend who promises they'll pay us back, next time we go out for a bevvy. But they never really do, do they?

Enter Finch, the self-proclaimed financial app for your social life. From splitting bills to planning trips with your mates and even getting more insights into your spending habits, it's a terrific app for those who are looking to get a handle on their finances.

Today on Pocket Money, we're speaking with Jessica Box, Finch's marketing director and the director of the Australian Girls in Tech chapter. She joined us in the Finder studio to talk about the origins of the personal finance app and all the interesting stuff the company has learned as it has grown, plus some embarrassing insights of her own.

Finch took home the 2018 Finder Award for Best Personal Finance App in Australia and is building a platform for Aussies (and soon businesses) to take their financial management to the next level.
