About Shaun

Hi, I’m Shaun McGowan and I’m the founder of

I set up Money in 2018 with a simple goal: to help consumers and businesses pay less for financial products.

Every month we enable thousands of Australians to do exactly that.

We do it through clever financial tech that is less hard sell and more hard facts.

We show you products and rates you actually qualify for. Not ones that look good but disappear as soon as you’re ready to sign up.


Before setting up Money, I founded and later established Lend, a company that specialises in business finance.

To put that another way, I’ve been helping individuals and businesses navigate the finance landscape for more than 15 years.

In that time I’ve worked with most Australian lenders in one way or another.

I know how they work and how to get their best deals, whether it's car finance, a personal loan, business loan, home loan or credit card.

In short, I deal with lenders so you don’t have to.

Why you can trust me

Because Money is not affiliated to any lenders, I’m free to tell you the truth about how their products work. The good, the bad and the ugly.

I write honest, no-nonsense articles and guides about financial topics and products based on real experience.

I’m not a journalist or a media spokesperson. I deal with real borrowers and lenders every day of the week.

And every month I commission original research among Australian consumers so Money has its finger on the pulse of the issues that matter to you.

Have a look at my recent articles below and you’ll see what I mean.
