Advertising, Affiliate, and Editorial Disclosures

Editorial Disclosure & Objectivity Approach

AdvisoryHQ is an independent online news media that provides extensive research, reviews, and ranking of firms and products across the U.S., U.K., and Canada. 

Compensation does not impact the objectivity of AdvisoryHQ’s editorial reviews and publications.

The results of AdvisoryHQ's selection are based on specified selection methodologies that are often included or referenced on the articles. The selection and inclusion of any firm, product or service to our "top ranking" or "top rated" publications is based on objective, quantitative, and qualitative analysis and is not affected by compensation.

Our review and ranking articles are always 100% independently researched and written. Firms do not pay for their ranking. In fact, most firms do not even realize that they are being reviewed by AdvisoryHQ until after our reviews have been completed and published to the public.       

Advertisers & Affiliates Disclosure

Some links, rate tables, advertising banners, and promotional offers on this site are from advertisers, partners, and affiliates that compensate us when you click on these links, rate tables, offers, promotions, and banners. Compensation could be based on leads (when you click on the links) or based on if you open an account, subscribe, sign-up with, or perform specific actions on the partner, advertiser's or affiliate's site.

Compensation received by AdvisoryHQ may impact how and where reviews and firms appear on AdvisoryHQ, including the order in which they appear. However, AdvisoryHQ will never include a firm on our "top ranking" reviews unless the firm passes our selection criteria. 

In addition, AdvisoryHQ places Google AdSense ads, rate tables from our partners, affiliate display banners and links, and other types of advertisements on specific sections across the site. Compensation may also impact which products, companies or services we review and write about and where and how they are placed.   

How Advertising Supports AdvisoryHQ

Advertising helps support AdvisoryHQ and provides us with the much needed resources to create articles that are free for you, the reader, to enjoy.

AdvisoryHQ News is grateful if you choose to apply for an affiliate product, rate table, service or offer through our site. Such compensation supports the site and enables the AdvisoryHQ team to continue performing our objective level of research and due diligence, carrying out our editorial functions, and maintaining the functionality of the site.    

Our Focus Is on the Everyday Consumer

A fundamental part of our approach is to perform objective research and due diligence on financial firms, products, software, and services. We then publish our unbiased reviews on our site for consumers to view for free.

The AdvisoryHQ News editorial team is dedicated to comprehensiveness, transparency, and objectivity in how we work. All research that we perform is done from the consumer perspective, and every review, article, and published content is drafted from the viewpoint of the consumer.

Since financial products, advisors, and technology inevitably change over time, we periodically update our review publications to ensure that we continue to provide the most relevant information.
