ValuePenguin is a personal finance website that conducts in-depth research & analysis on a variety of topics from insurance to credit cards. The Company focuses on providing high-quality resources to help consumers understand the topics in which they’re interested. Whether it is building visual tools to explain data or publishing in-depth research, the Company’s goal is to provide objective analysis to help guide customers to the best decision. ValuePenguin focuses on value, assessing whether the return of a particular purchase or decision is worth the cost or risk of that option, and how this stacks up with the other possible choices a consumer may have. The Company was founded in 2013 and is based in New York, NY.
LendingTree is the nation’s leading online marketplace that connects consumers with the choices they need to be confident in their financial decisions.
