Financial Review Board

SimpleMoneyLyfe’s content is written by financial industry veterans and personal finance experts. All published content is fact-checked for accuracy and relevance. The Financial Review Board allows us to uphold our commitment to accuracy and maintain our editorial integrity.  The review board is composed of professionals with a breadth of expertise and credentials, including CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®), Chartered Financial Analyst® (CFA®), Certified Public Accountants (CPA), University Professors, Renowned Economists, Legendary Investors, and Crypto Analysts.

The Financial Review Board audits our content and works together with our editorial team to make necessary changes for accuracy and compliance. As a leading and trustworthy resource for thousands of Americans, our responsibility is to ensure that the content we publish is held to a high standard. This is a responsibility we do not take lightly. The Financial Review Board helps us empower SimpleMoneyLyfe readers to make clear, simple financial decisions with confidence.

Financial Review Board Guiding Principles

  • Accurate: Sitting members are charged with ensuring our content is accurate and compliant with industry standards. We do not cut corners and love the nitty-gritty details buried in the fine print.
  • Integrity: Board members do not jeopardize their fiduciary responsibility and integrity. Consumers will always remain our number one priority.
  • Inclusive: We work tirelessly to ensure the content published is relatable to all nationalities, ethnicities, ages, and diverse backgrounds.
  • Unbiased: Our experts ensure the content we publish is rigorously researched and clearly lays out all the facts. Between financial product reviews, equity research, and guiding you through your unique financial journey, we remain impartial to political organizations and financial institutions.

How Does the Financial Review Board Work?

The Financial Review Board is constantly evolving to meet our readers’ demands. Select articles are assigned to board members based on their expertise and professional experience. After thoroughly reviewing the assigned article, the board member and editorial team work together to make necessary changes.

Board members have no affiliation with the financial products we review or business partnerships. This separation between our editorial and business operations team allows us to prioritize the best possible outcome for our readers.

How Do I Know If An Article Was Reviewed?

At the top of the article, you’ll notice a magnifying glass and text that reads, “reviewed by”  next to the authors name. We are working with the financial review board and editorial team to review all SimpleMoneyLyfe articles published.

Your Feedback Makes Us Better

Our editorial team and financial review board want to make sure we publish content that is accurate, relevant, and backed by data. If you have any questions about the content published or have feedback for our team, we would love to hear it.

We can make SimpleMoneyLyfe the number one resource for Americans to find trustworthy financial content. Please reach out through our Contact Us page.
