About the OppU Review Board

When it comes to finances, you can’t afford to be misinformed. By providing accurate and credible content, the OppU editorial staff strives to equip readers with the knowledge they need to handle everyday financial challenges.

For this reason, we created the OppU Review Board. The priority of the board is to uphold the editorial policies set forth by the OppU staff. We want to give our readers confidence that the information on the OppU Blog is trustworthy, vetted, and reliable. The board reviews content for accuracy, relevance, and clarity.
