I’m Jesse Cramer.


I started The Best Interest in 2018. I was working as a mechanical engineer designing satellite telescopes. 


But deep down, I was a personal finance and investing nerd. I loved answering my colleagues' 401(k) and retirement questions. OneTarget Date Fund at a time, I found my passion to help people improve their personal finances.


The basics are important. There are many great resources to learn those basics.


But with my engineering background, I enjoy breaking down more complex topics into simple terms. 


I created The Best Interest to share what I've learned and to add genuine signal to an otherwise noisy Internet.

Fast forward to now.
A lot has changed...

- The Best Interest was nominated in 2022 as "Personal Finance Blog of the Year" 

- The Best Interest Podcast was nominated in 2023 as "People's Choice Podcast of the Year"

- I've been on CNBC, the Wall Street Journal, the Motley Fool, Yahoo Finance, and more.

- I left engineering and now work with clients at a fiduciary, fee-only wealth management firm in Rochester, NY. Our mission is to guide people to a successful financial future. Reach out to work with Jesse here. 

How The Best Interest
Will Help You

Ben Franklin wrote, “an investment in knowledge pays the best interest.” (Yes – that’s how I got the blog’s name!)  


I believe in those words. You'll earn a massive return on investment if you invest in knowledge.


The Best Interest provides that knowledge by covering topics like:


- Investing and portfolio management

- Tax planning

- Investor psychology

- Estate planning

- Economic conditions

- And much more

The Best Interest helps thousands of people every week. All for free. Because as Lawrence Lessig said,


“If the Internet teaches us anything, it is that great value comes from leaving core resources in a commons, where they’re free for people to build upon as they see fit.”


The Best Interest will help you too.
