Editorial Policy

LearnVest empowers people everywhere to take control of their money and live their richest lives.

How We Choose Stories
LearnVest strives to give readers the news and information they need to make informed financial decisions.

The topics we cover in LearnVest’s content are determined by our editorial staff. LearnVest does not accept money in return for coverage, nor do we let advertisers, sponsors or partners dictate our recommendations.

Occasionally, you’ll receive an email called LV Bonus. This is content paid for by our sponsors, and will be designated as such.

Financial Advice
For reported pieces, LearnVest relies on research, accurate and fair reporting and fact-checking.

Some of LearnVest’s stories, like opinion pieces or personal essays, fall into the category of subjective content. These pieces reflect the beliefs of the individual writer, not LearnVest itself.

Any financial advice given in a story is vetted by a Certified Financial Planner™ within LearnVest Planning Services.

Financial advice, ideally, should be tailored to a specific person’s circumstances. If you have a question about your financial situation, we offer paid financial plans through LearnVest Planning Services. LearnVest’s free content is not meant to serve as a personalized recommendation.
