What Drives Us

NerdWallet is focused on helping people lead better lives through financial education and empowerment.

When it comes to credit cards, insurance, loans or expenses like hospital costs, consumers make almost all their decisions in the dark. NerdWallet is changing that by building accessible online tools and providing research and experts that can’t be found anywhere else, all to help consumers take back control of their choices in a marketing-driven, trillion-dollar industry.

What We Do

We put knowledge in your wallet

We’ve built NerdWallet into the source for information, insight and consumer-driven advice about personal finance. Because you shouldn’t pay for what you don’t know.
