Founded in May of 2013 and based in Bournemouth on the south coast of the UK, Choose Wisely is a trusted, free to use price comparison website for people who find it difficult to know which personal finance product suits them the best. That might be because they've got a poor credit history or no credit history; it might be because they find mainstream price comparison websites confusing or difficult to use; or it might just be because they prefer to use simple, straightforward comparison and to be able to rely on a source they can trust.
Whether it's a bank account, credit card, loan, prepaid card or small business loan, Choose Wisely not only connects people to comprehensive pricing information but in-depth product data, customer reviews and unique customer friendliness ratings too. No ads, no jargon, no spam. no pensions, no ISAs, no investments. Just a really simple way of comparing important things.
Choose Wisely is staffed by a diverse team of engineers, creatives and product people who share the common belief that identifying the right finance product shouldn't be difficult, consumers should be empowered with the information they need to make the right choice and that quality price comparison experiences should be available to everyone. If you share those beliefs and you're interested in joining us on our mission.
