Michael Carvin

Michael Carvin is the CEO and Founder of, a free web app that provides a platform for highly interactive, personalized advice focused on life’s significant financial decisions. After purchasing a home in early 2010, Michael decided that personal finance decisions could be made dramatically more transparent and straightforward, hence the development of SmartAsset’s online optimization tool. Our decision engine helps consumers evaluate the long-term effects of decisions such as home purchases, furthering education, family planning, and savings and retirement planning. Before founding SmartAsset, Michael worked in finance as a Senior Private Equity Associate at Altima Partners and has also worked in Economic and Strategic Consulting.
