Press Release: Anasova Earns Strategic Investment
Tom Anderson, Founder & CEO
Money is the #1 cause of stress, yet many people don't know who to turn to discuss their money matters, let alone service their needs. This leaves financial advisors and firms to rely on blanket marketing tactics, instrusive advertising, and hunting people for referrals.
Anasova (Ana-so-va) helps start the conversation about money. Financial advisors, banks, credit unions, and related financial service providers use our fast, free and anonymous financial assessment tool to engage prospects and clients.
We are a venture-backed company that combines lead generation, qualification and discovery, all in one tool. We help flatten the sales funnel from lead to revenue, and we do it in a way that is frictionless for the consumer and cost-effective for our client.
Our mission is to help people reduce their financial stress by providing easy access to personalized financial education and have better conversations with their advisor. We remove the barriers to access they need for financial wellness.
Meet the team behind the mission.
We have lived and advised every part of the money journey.
