Best Personal Finance Expert of 2014 Here

We Want to Know: Who is the Best Personal Finance Expert?

Some might judge expertise by the number of best-sellers a finance guru has written, or even the number of Twitter followers he has, but GOBankingRates is going straight to our readers for the answer. We know all of the biggest names in personal finance provide their followers with great tips and ideas, but whose advice is so compelling, so engaging, that they can boast having the largest and most loyal fan base?

This December, we’re asking GOBankingRates visitors to vote for their favorite finance experts and personalities to determine the top choice for 2014. This year’s finalists are:

Robert Kiyosaki, Emma Johnson (RetailMeNot), Tiffany Aliche (The Budgetnista), Jeanette Pavini (, Rachel Cruze, Sharon Epperson (CNBC), Dave Ramsey, Cameron Huddleston (Kiplinger), Josh Felber, Farnoosh Torabi, Suze Orman and Warren Buffett.

Each year, we are astonished by the level of participation in our Best Personal Finance Expert competition; our experts have accumulated tens of thousands of votes, inspiring an outpouring of support from followers, with thousands of comments across GOBankingRates, Facebook and Twitter. We expect 2014 to be our biggest year yet.

How It Works

Each day, beginning Dec. 1, we will publish the bio of one expert featured in our poll. While bios will be published during the first 12 days of December, voting takes place throughout the entire month. Visitors are allowed to vote more than once, so feel free to come back every day and ensure your top pick is winning.

Voting is now closed for Best Personal Finance Expert of 2014. You can still vote for your favorite personal finance expert of 2015:
