WalletHub is a personal finance website that launched in early August 2013.[1][2][3] It is based in Washington, D.C.[4][5][6] and owned by Evolution Finance, Inc. - parent company of the credit card website CardHub.com.[7][8]

According to Web reports, WalletHub initially positioned itself as a "personal finance social network" with a focus on reviews for financial advisors.[9][10][11] It has since branched into producing research reports and surveys[12][13][14][15][16][17][18] on topics with varying degrees of relevance to personal finance, from the relationship between credit scores and car insurance premiums[19] to a ranking of the fattest states in the nation.[20] Some of these reports have led to criticism by groups such as the Center for Community College Student Engagement,[21] FloridaPolitics.com[22] and NJBiz.com.[23]

WalletHub is also known for its free consumer tools,[24][25][26] such as its WalletLiteracy Quiz[27][28] and its Financial Fitness Tool, which provides users with free credit reports, credit scores and credit monitoring.[29][30] The company also successfully overcame a public trademark dispute with Major League Baseball, brought on behalf of the Washington Nationals and Chicago Cubs.[31][32]
