Simplified Personal Financial Statement

               Sometimes keeping things simple is the best way to continuously manage wealth. That is why GPetrium has built a ‘Simplified Personal Financial Statement’. This document outlines one’s individual financial position and it is divided into two major areas: Assets & Liabilities. A secondary benefit of having it is that some lender may request a Personal Financial Statement before allowing you to borrow money from them*.

*Please note that some lender will provide a formal PFS to be filled. Be sure to follow their directions.
