Get to know the crew

This bunch is beyond compare

The finder.com.au team are dedicated to helping Australians find better. We hope that, together with our money experts, you'll learn about your finances and feel empowered to change for the better.

If you'd like to learn more about finder.com.au, you can check out our mission, or history and a few frequently asked questions that we've answered. If you still have questions or need a hand with anything, feel free to contact one of our team members and we'll try to get back to you as soon as possible.

The Budget Buffs

These guys make up the editorial team here at finder.com.au. All the content, articles, posts, guides, news pieces and more were penned (or rather, typed) by their hands. They're the same team members who respond to user questions and comments on the website and who answer the hundreds of emails we receive every week. Combined, they have decades worth of experience in writing about finance, fashion, technology and more. Half of them can quote the Simpsons on demand while the other get teary eyed at the mention of Dobby or Hedwig.

The Marketing and PR Team

Where our Budget Buffs deal with content on the website, the M&Ms team is responsible for all our content outside of the website. This dynamic crew includes our resident Money Experts whom you may have seen on television, heard on radio or read about in the papers or online. In addition to our top-notch PR team, we've got ace advertisers and community managers who make sure that all our marketing material, from display ads to emails and social media, is top-quality. Contrary to their namesake, the M&Ms are partial to gummy bears, Tim Tams and chocolate covered coffee beans.

The IT Crowd

Our website handles over a million visitors each month. We have thousands of pages of content and products that need to load seamlessly for our users; these guys make that happen. They're the developers, designers and product managers that power finder.com.au. They're always striving to make the website faster, better looking and easier to use. Most of them can solve a Rubik's cube in under 5 minutes (Stoosh holds the record at 1:30) and some are mean Magic: The Gathering players.

The Behind-the-Scenes Crew

While you can see the fruit of most of our teams' labours on the website or across the web, this unit's work takes place behind the curtain. No company can operate without their accounts team, human resources, office managers or technical support staff. We've also got our client services team who work tirelessly to make sure our product set is as comprehensive and high-quality as we can get. They've got the funnest section of the office – right by our post-it-note wall art. Lucky ducks.

      Hi Ray,

      Credit cards won’t usually include any income protection insurance. If you would like to compare income protection insurance you can do so here:

      For redundancy cover, check out this page.

      I hope this helps,

      Hi John,

      Thanks for reaching out.

      On top of this page, there is a search box where you can type the card feature you are looking for (e.g. no annual fee credit card, 0% purchase rate credit card, rewards credit card).

      You may also go to this page directly and look for a particular credit card.

    I vaguely remember watching a program during the last week or so, probably “A Current Affair” whereby if we provided our licence number & address to “finder.com.au” we could find out our score on a scale of 0 to 1,200. But I don’t recall what the story or the score related to?
    Can you please advise?
    Kindest Regards

      Hi Mike,

      You may be referring to The Today Show. The story was about our launch of free credit scores in finder.com.au – you can find out more about it, and receive your free credit score, on this page.

      Hope this helps,

    Hi There,

    Your NBN coverage service is showing that the NBN is now available in the Picketts Valley. I checked in initially with a couple of providers (Telstra & MyNetFone) and they said this wasn’t the case. I then checked in with NBN and they said this wasn’t the case as there was some outstanding work, but they wouldn’t say what it was or when it would occur. Are you able to shed some light on that please?

    Kind regards,

    Good morning. I wish to travel on a cruise from 14/09/2016 to 12/10/2016 to South East Asia. I have had Atrial Fibrillation for 2 years but I cannot find travel insurance. I have recently had Cardioversion and I am on blood thinning medication. Can you help me please?

    Hi Finder team,

    I am looking for a comparison. Monday to Friday for breakfast I either eat a bagel or a muffin with margarine. I am looking to eat a bit healthier. Which is the better option: the bagel or muffin? I hope you can help me out as no one seems to be compare the two.

      Hi Kevin,

      Thanks for your question.

      In regards to weight control, calories is generally the most important factor.

      Muffins around the 7cm mark usually contain 120 – 160 calories but today’s giant bakery muffins contain nearly 340 – 630 calories each.

      Mini bagels are about 72 calories but 11cm deli bagels contain 300 – 380 calories each.

      So to be on the safer side and assuming you put the same amount of margarine on both, you may want to consider the bagel instead.

      Hope this helps.

      Just to confirm, you have come through to finder.com.au, not Foxtel.

      You can contact Foxtel on 13 19 99.

      I hope this has helped.

      Hi Helen,

      Thanks for your request. If you would like to make an enquiry about life insurance policies, check out:
      life insurance policies

      You can submit your details into our form and get a quote for multiple life insurance policies. You can then organise life insurance directly with the provider and if required, speak to a consultant.

      I hope this helps,
