NextAdvisor About Us

About Us

We’ve teamed up with TIME to bring you the best new information on money—how to make it, spend it, save it, and use it to achieve your goals.

We want to help you make more informed decisions. Some links on our site — clearly marked — will take you to a partner website and may result in us earning a referral commission. For more information, see How We Make Money.

We never

  • Allow partners to dictate our content
  • Write positive stories to court or placate advertisers and business partners
  • Recommend products and services we wouldn’t suggest to our friends and family

We always

  • Consult subject matter experts on the topics we’re writing about
  • Vet companies, products, and services through testing, interviews with experts, monitoring customer reviews, and other research
  • Determine any ratings or rankings independent of our revenue department or sponsors
  • Disclose affiliate links
  • Update articles with corrections if there are any inaccuracies

How We Make Money

We want to help you make more informed decisions. Some links on our site — including links to products or links marked as advertisement or partner offers — will take you to a partner website and may result in us earning a referral commission. But affiliate partnerships do not direct our editorial decisions.

We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make financial decisions. We are paid by providing advertising services. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how and where those ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every financial product or service that may be available to you. The advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. So, your actual offer from an advertiser may be different than those on our site. All information is presented without any warrant or guarantee to you.
