Hanna Horvath is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and editor with over five years’ experience helping make complex financial topics engaging and easy to understand. She is currently the senior editor of content partnerships at Bankrate.

From there, she made it her personal mission to help everyone – especially those in marginalized groups – better understand their personal finances and make smarter decisions with their money.

Hanna is also a copywriter for fintech brands across the industry, helping them establish their content messaging and drive audience engagement. In addition to Bankrate, her journalistic work has appeared in Policygenius, Business Insider, Lemonade, NBC News, and Inc Magazine.
