NerdWallet seeks to bring clarity to life's financial decisions.

I've made a ton of avoidable mistakes throughout my life. The small mistakes have cost me thousands of dollars, while the expensive mistakes have cost me thousands of hours. Frustratingly, all of this grief was pointless and totally avoidable, had I simply been better informed.

No matter who you are, being informed in finance is nearly impossible due to information asymmetry. Bankers, agents, and brokers are happy to give you advice, but they are usually trying to sell you something, so you can't be sure they are on your side. Your friends and family are well intentioned, but they usually aren't experts in what you need to know.

NerdWallet is creating a place for consumers to turn for straight answers to money questions. We're nerdy because we strive for encyclopedic knowledge about big financial decisions, even if it means gathering 1,700 credit cards into a database or collecting millions of car insurance quotes. We're not going to stop until we've brought clarity to every major financial decision you'll ever face - and we're always going to give you the same advice we'd give our own families.

We're located in the heart of San Francisco, a city abuzz with creative energy. Let's pursue this mission together - http://www.nerdwallet.com/about-us
