About Us

Since it was created in 1994, Interest.com has been helping consumers make smart decisions about almost every aspect of their financial lives. Half a million readers come to our site every month for the latest news and advice, to use our calculators and worksheets, and search for the best interest rates on everything from mortgages to certificates of deposit.

Our content is divided into five channels: Home Loans, Investment, Retirement, Car and Calculators. Lots of links allow readers to quickly navigate through the site and most pages provide the opportunity to ask questions and receive a personal response from one of our editors or experts.

You'll also find Interest.com's stories, calculators and rate tables on the Web sites of more than 100 newspapers in 31 states, including the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and Dallas Morning News.

Interest.com is owned by Bankrate, Inc., among the largest and most trusted providers of personal finance advice and information on the Web. In addition to Interest.com, the company publishes Bankrate.com and Mortgage-calc.com.

Bankrate is also the Web's leading aggregator of financial rate information. Its research is unique in its depth and breadth, continually surveying approximately 4,800 financial institutions in all 50 states to provide the most accurate and up-to-date rates for Interest.com's readers.
