Our History:

Scott Nelson
MoneyNerd Founder

MoneyNerd was founded in 2017 by Scott Nelson who has over a decade of experience in the credit card and loan industry and launched some of the UK’s most recognisable brands.

Witnessing the suffocating impact of the credit and loan industry on many people in the UK made him realise the desperate need for support. With rising costs of living, escalating inflation, and increased instances of debt and bankruptcy, he felt compelled to do something to help. Drawing on his deep industry insight, he founded MoneyNerd with a vision to provide meaningful help.

How MoneyNerd Works

MoneyNerd is a financial information website. We have thousands of free guides to support our readers that are in debt.

We specialise in providing information to help people that:

  • Have been chased by debt collectors
  • Have received unfair tickets or fines
  • Need advice on how to get better with their finances

When readers get in touch with us, we ask them to follow a 4-step process:

  1. Fill out our debt form. This is a few basic questions to understand your background.
  2. Connect to our trusted partners and tell them your story so it’s clear what your situation is.
  3. Get information about all of the debt solutions that might be available to you from The Debt Advice Service. Whether that’s taking a different approach to your budgeting, or using a debt solution to protect you from creditors and give you one simple monthly repayment.
  4. Get supported through the journey and you’re made sure that you know what you’re doing so you can regain control of your finances.
