Our Editorial Values

Integrity … meaning accuracy and honesty.

Transparency … meaning clarity and being upfront about our sources.

Expertise … meaning authority and trust.

Our Editorial Principles

  • Our purpose is to inform and educate so that consumers can make better financial decisions.

  • We believe every reader is entitled to fair and accurate information and that the difference between editorial content and marketing messages should be transparent.

  • We are on the side of consumers, helping inform them with news stories, features, reports, guides and product reviews.

  • We always strive for balanced content, providing pros and cons where applicable.

  • Our editorial team is responsible for creating editorial content, including written reviews and assessments.

  • Editorial decisions are made by the editorial team and are not driven by commercial relationships.

  • In some instances, commercial partners provide us with expertise and industry knowledge for our content. We do this with the goal of providing the most accurate, reliable and useful information to our readers.

  • Our reviews are objective, factual and based on the actual attributes of the product, not our own personal views.

  • Our editorial team does all of its work using journalistic methods in an objective manner, always consistent with helping the consumer first.

About our commercial partnerships

Mozo’s editorial opinions, analysis and information aren’t reliant on commercial considerations. We often work with industry leaders, partners and affiliates, some of which we have a commercial relationship with, others we don’t. In many instances, they provide us with expertise and industry knowledge for our content. We do this with the goal of providing reliable and useful information to our readers.

However, we are not a mouthpiece for the brands we feature on our website. Even when we do write about partners, they do not approve editorial content prior to publishing. We may share their content as a courtesy, never as an obligation. We don’t receive compensation for editorial content. 

Teach a man to fish

We’re upfront about the fact that our financial licences don’t allow us to give personal advice to our readers, because we don’t know personal situations well enough to do so. Instead, we’re all about giving our readers the information they need to make the best decisions about their finances. 

Our review process

As part of our commitment to being accurate and dependable, all of our content is internally reviewed by an editor. More detailed and in-depth pieces are typically approved by a subject matter expert or our compliance manager, as necessary. Our editing and review process means that every piece of editorial content is fact-checked and held up to our editorial standards.

Some of our content may include referrals to external parties where we’ve deemed it useful and appropriate. Where this is the case, referral links are clearly marked and that content goes through a strict compliance review process before publishing to ensure it meets our standards for accuracy, fairness and transparency.

Accuracy and corrections

We do our best to make sure every piece of editorial content we publish is as accurate and complete as possible. We know that finances are an important part of our readers’ lives, and we take that responsibility very seriously.

So how do we make money? 

Our goal at Mozo is to help you make smart financial decisions and our award-winning comparison tools and services are provided free of charge. As a marketplace business, we do earn money from advertising where the provider pays us a fee if you go to their site from ours, or you take out a product with them. But you do not pay any extra for using our service.
