Congratulations to this year’s Plutus Awards finalists! The entire community of bloggers has had the opportunity to vote for their favorite financial products and services.
The companies whose products are finalists — and particularly those chosen as winners, to be announced here on October 17 — are those that offer the best for the community of personal finance bloggers, and more importantly, their readers.
The community of bloggers polled for the Plutus Awards consists of experts in the fields of money management and personal finance. As a result, the set of winners for the product-focused Plutus Awards are meaningful to the companies that win.
The finalists for the blogging categories will be announced later this morning.
Companies that would like to share their selection as a finalist for the Third Annual Plutus Awards may do so by proudly displaying this badge.
