Weiss Ratings’ Mission Statement

Weiss Ratings’ mission is to empower consumers, professionals, and institutions with high quality advisory information for selecting or monitoring a financial services company or financial investment.

In doing so, Weiss Ratings will adhere to the highest ethical standards by maintaining our independent, unbiased outlook and approach for our customers.

Whether you are interested in the safety of a bank, credit union or insurance company, or looking for a way to identify and monitor investments, you need a reliable source. With access to more than 40,000 investment ratings on stocks, mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and 16,000 safety ratings on banks, credit unions and insurance companies, you’ll enjoy unprecedented coverage of the companies and investments you want to follow.

Weiss Ratings is THE source for accurate, unbiased, and safest ratings that you can rely on to make sound, informed financial decisions. Weiss helps guide consumers, individual investors, and business professionals toward the best investment, banking and insurance options, always with an eye to avoiding unnecessary risks that could lead to financial losses.

Weiss does not accept any compensation from the companies or investments it rates for issuing the rating. Nor does it give them an opportunity to preview the ratings or suppress their publication for any reason. Weiss is totally independent and unbiased because its loyalty is to you — the customer.

We encourage you to use our ratings and analyses to avoid the potential dangers of the weakest investments and financial institutions — to find those that you can trust now and well into the future.
