Review Methodology

At New Money Insider, empowering our audience with factual and impartial insights into diverse financial offerings stands as our core mission. We are dedicated to delivering reviews marked by transparency and dependability, steering clear of any marketing or affiliate biases to maintain our neutrality.

Our seasoned editorial team adheres to a strict review protocol, scrutinizing every facet of financial products—spanning features, advantages, limitations, and possible constraints. Considerations extend to customer support quality, company reputation, and cost-effectiveness, ensuring a thorough and balanced evaluation.

Upon concluding our review, products are awarded a distinctive score reflective of their overall merit and value proposition. This meticulous approach guides our readers toward making well-informed financial decisions, fostering confidence as they navigate the intricate landscape of financial offerings.

Mortgage Review Criteria

Our mortgage evaluations assign ratings from 1 to 5, with fractional increments, based on a detailed criteria matrix.

We differentiate reviews by mortgage type, applying specific weightings to aspects like interest rates for fixed-rate mortgages or adjustment terms for ARMs. Despite our partnerships, these affiliations do not influence our ratings, which are solely determined by product features.

We constantly engage with mortgage lenders to ensure the consistency and accuracy of our information, promptly updating our content with any offer adjustments.

This commitment to real-time accuracy and comprehensive ratings aims to assist consumers in making the best mortgage choice for their needs.

Investment and Brokerage Review Frameworks

Our review frameworks for robo-advisors, real estate platforms, stock brokers, and micro-savings apps hinge on detailed criteria such as fees, customer service quality, platform usability, investment diversity, and due diligence.

Ratings, again on a scale of 1 to 5, reflect an in-depth analysis aimed at providing actionable insights for investment decisions.

Loan and Insurance Evaluation Processes

Evaluations of personal loans, peer-to-peer lending, and various insurance types (auto, home, pet, life, and renters) are grounded in a comprehensive analysis of several factors, primarily including:

  • Claims processing

This rigorous examination ensures readers receive reliable guidance tailored to their financial and insurance needs.
