Hi I’m Allison Cortez, and I’m the Chief Editor here at wealthmaverick.com. After obtaining a degree in economics, I went to work as an investment banker in the banking industry. I later earned my MBA, and that led to many more opportunities in my field. I learned a lot about the industry and spent time working in underwriting, as well as securities like stocks and bonds. It has been enormously rewarding bringing my experience and expertise to wealthmaverick.com. Writing about this industry and giving guidance on how to invest and make more money is important to me.
Wealthmaverick.com is run by a team of finance and investing enthusiasts and our mission is to help people who are interested in learning more about investing and wealth building become better educated when it comes to financial growth.
At wealthmaverick.com, we write about a variety of financial topics, including reviews of credit cards, maintaining (and getting) a good credit score, reducing debt, budgeting, and more. If you’re interested in personal finance, we hope to be your first stop on the web.
Everyone faces tough financial decisions at some point. For a long time, many people have been forced to navigate important decisions without help or clarity. But here at wealthmaverick.com, we are determined to change that. Our straightforward tips and honest advice will help guide you in calculating your mortgage, getting out of debt, and ensuring that you’re ready for retirement when the time comes.
Between student loans and credit card debt, Americans are in more debt than at any time previously in history. Unfortunately, we live in a world in which information is abundant and easy to access, but the overload of information makes it even more difficult to decide what we can trust and be certain of. Also, it’s challenging to find reputable finance-related guidance and information.
Furthermore, how we intake our news and information has changed. A decade ago, you may have been reading a book on personal finance or talking to a financial adviser at a fancy office. Now, the information you’re looking for is probably a five-second Google search away. But how can you be sure it’s good information?
This is easy: our readers are our top priority. The information we provide, the guidance we try to offer, and the tools we recommend are based on unbiased, independent, objective, and straightforward opinions and ideas.
If you’re interested in learning more about investing and finance overall, we welcome you to our site and our community and we hope you find our resources helpful! We’d love to hear from you, whether that’s in a comment on one of our posts or a private message to our team.
