Building tools to help individuals assess retail financial projects
Financial products such as credit cards, adjustable-rate mortages and reverse mortgages are complex enough that individuals have difficulty assessing their attractiveness or their risks. Some financial institutions use this complexity to hide large fees and other traps. Our goal is to build a suite of calculators that will help individuals determine whether financial products are suitable for their needs.
