Our mission

Our mission is to empower consumers to understand and improve their finances and discover the best financial products for every stage of life.

Most of the other loan comparison sites are just “lead generation” sites. This means they just provide you with rate ranges that are already publicly available and then they sell your data to lenders. But Credible is different.

Here’s how:

  • We offer expert guidance to help empower you to take control of your finances
  • We give you the ability to quickly compare personalized rates for free
  • We never sell your data to lenders and your personal information is secured with 256 bit encryption

Our promise to our readers

All of our writers and editors are financial experts and strive to give you all the information you need to help you on your financial journey. Although we do feature products from our partners, all of our guidance is unbiased and all opinions will always be our own, not dictated by any of our partner lenders.

All of the content on the Credible blog is written by our experienced writers and financial experts, fact-checked for accuracy, and edited with you, the reader, in mind.

We promise to always:

  • Have your best interests in mind
  • Offer completely unbiased guidance
  • Help you reach your financial goals
  • Empower you to take control of your finances

Best lenders methodology

Credible’s “best” lenders are evaluated through loan and lender data points in multiple categories to identify the “best companies” for refinancing student loans, private student loans, personal loans, mortgage purchase, and mortgage refinancing.

We evaluate lenders with you, the reader, in mind because we want to empower you to make the best financial decisions for your personal finance situation.

Among other categories, we look at interest rates, repayment terms, repayment options, fees, discounts, customer service availability, and more offered by lenders. We also consider each company’s eligibility requirements, whether the minimum credit score is available publicly, and whether consumers could request rates with a soft credit check.
