LendingTree jumps into borrower education

LendingTree has released a series of web videos that teach mortgage-related concepts, the latest financial institution to get into customer (or potential customer) education.

The company is the flagship brand under the Charlotte-based Tree.com mantle. It brings together mortgage offers from a number of banks to customers looking to buy or refinance.

A LendingTree executive said in a press release that the company wanted to "educate consumers so they feel more confident in the mortgage process."

Charlotte's big banks have recently gotten into this space as well. Bank of America announced in April a partnership with the nonprofit online Khan Academy to publish and promote a series of financial literacy videos.

Wells Fargo's newly redesigned website also more prominently features education and information around its product lines.

Here's an example of LendingTree's new videos:

Education remains very expensive nowadays so students and their parents search for different variants to cover the expenses and very often they need to borrow money. And what happens next children get their diplomas together with a huge debt. It proves that there is a great necessity to raise the level of financial education and keep people informed about the current programs. We decided that the best way for us is to try to save enough money before our children start their study to give them opportunity write their papers (here is a supporting service Help On Essay ) without a concern about money moreover it will be less expensive for us.
