Acorns, the country’s fastest-growing micro-investing app with more than 2 million accounts, today announced its partnership with Adam Dell’s Clarity Money, the personal finance app that acts as the “Champion of your Money.”

Through the partnership, Clarity Money customers can easily become Acorns investors and take advantage of Acorns automated investing features. Existing Acorns investors also benefit by being able to see a snapshot of their activity in the Clarity Money app.

Clarity Money’s rapidly growing user base will also have access to Acorns’ cash forward rewards program, Found Money, which has become the standard for brands that want to invest into peoples’ futures. Launched in May 2016, the Found Money program has attracted many of the top millennial brands, including Casper, Dollar Shave Club, Nike, Warby Parker, and Airbnb. When Acorns investors shop with the partner brands, they get a direct investment into their Acorns account – shifting rewards from a cash back to a “cash forward” benefit.

“We love coming together with partners who, like us, spend all day thinking about their customers’ best interests,” said Noah Kerner, CEO of Acorns. “Clarity has built a wonderful product founded on very similar values to which we subscribe.”

“Acorns empowers consumers to become investors, which is an important step in financial health. We are delighted to offer this solution to our customers,” said Adam Dell, CEO and Founder of Clarity Money.

Clarity Money uses data science and machine learning to provide personalized insights for customers, helping them to track their expenses, lower their bills, and get customized recommendations on credit cards and other financial products that fit their specific needs. Through the partnership, Acorns will be embedded into the Clarity Money app, which makes it easier for both Acorns and Clarity customers to manage their money.

You can download Acorns and Clarity Money on any smartphone device. Both are available on iOS and Acorns is also available as an Android and web app.
