Lantern Editorial Policy

Lantern by SoFi provides educational content, including product and lender reviews, to help you make informed financial decisions. We seek to create original and contextual content to shed light on topics that relate to general consumer credit and personal finance issues. The Lantern editorial staff, and the independent contractors they supervise, adhere to the following principles:


Our editorial team strives for objectivity. Lantern by SoFi makes money when our partners compensate us. This may influence which products we review, write about, and where those products appear on the site. This in no way affects our recommendations or advice and we do not pay our editors and writers based upon whether reviews are favorable. Our editors and writers are paid to produce articles that are useful to our customers. Our editorial team does not receive direct compensation from advertisers or partners.


Lantern by SoFi instructs our writers and editors to research and write their articles independently, based upon facts that can be substantiated, and without regard to Lantern by SoFi’s or our participating lenders’ interests in generating loan volume.


Fact-checking is an integral part of our production process for content on Lantern by SoFi. Every piece is reviewed in a multi-step effort to ensure accuracy and maintain integrity.
