Well, actually, only found it in advertisements . Sorry, but thought it would grab your attention. Was perusing some early magazines (no life!) and Personal Finance was listed by a couple advertisers in 1980. Making a few educated guesses, I have penciled in the gaps in Atari's "800 era" cart list:

4014 Mailing List (confirmed)
4017 Personal Finance?
4023 Berserk?
4028 Real Sports Soccer (confirmed)
8037 Star Trux (confirmed)
8038 Superman III?
8041 Kangaroo?

Personal Finance would fit nicely in the 4014-4019 numbers which were non-games. Berserk came out in the arcades in 1980 so it would have been early on. Superman was advertised right along with Star Trux, so I put them together. Kangaroo was a 1982 arcade game and was being done for the 5200 about this time.

And what happened to Personal Finance? Is it on disk or perhaps an APX title?
