An independent, nonprofit member organization that works with consumers for truth, transparency, and fairness in the marketplace.

Fairness and Transparency in the Financial Marketplace

People should be able to protect what they earn and make informed decisions about what to do with their money. That requires a fair and transparent financial system where consumers can spend, save, and borrow without fear of hidden fees, conflicts of interest, or predatory or discriminatory practices. To that end, we push for effective consumer protections, hold businesses accountable for their practices, and encourage smart innovations that put consumers first.
