Who are the Compare the Market Editorial Team?

Compare the Market’s Editorial Team is made up of industry experts with decades of experience in personal finance, insurance and utilities. Each of our authors has an area of expertise, where they can share their extensive experience to help you get a better deal, by finding the right product and saving money.

They also work with a series of independent authors to create and verify content. This means you can be confident that you’re getting the information you need to make the right financial decisions for you.

The Editorial Team’s goal

“We’re here to help you cut through the jargon that can sometimes make personal finance and insurance feel intimidating. We strive to make financial decision making a breeze for everyone, by providing you with the information you need to find the right deal for you.”

Our editorial process

To ensure our content is accurate, insightful and trustworthy, we have a four-step editorial process:

  2. Content is reviewed and verified by a second, independent reviewer.
  3. Content is signed off by our Legal & Compliance team to ensure it meets the high standards expected from Compare the Market, the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and other relevant regulators.
  4. Content is re-reviewed on a regular basis to ensure it remains accurate and relevant.

The Editorial Team commenting on…

Loans for people with bad credit

“Provided you can make the repayments, taking out a loan when you have bad credit can be useful and can even help repair or improve your credit score. But you need to make absolutely sure that the loan is affordable – and that you’re getting the right deal for you.”

Using debt consolidation loans

“Although potentially a last resort, debt consolidation loans can help you manage your debt more efficiently. Make sure you read the small print carefully and check to see if you’ll be charged a fee for paying off your other loans early – as this will affect the savings you’ll make with a debt consolidation loan.”

Using 0% purchase credit cards as an alternative to a loan

“0% purchase credit cards can be one of the cheapest ways to borrow money, if managed correctly. They’re a good alternative to personal loans and other finance deals, since you won’t get charged interest on purchases until the end of the promotional period, giving you time to pay off that new washing machine interest free. Make sure you read the terms and conditions carefully however, as some providers require you to spend within a short time frame (e.g. 60 days) to benefit from the offer.”
