NerdWallet, the online tools platform that helps customers understand how to make better financial decisions, has raised $64m in a Series A round led by IVP and RRE Ventures. The money is ostensibly much more than the company needs right now, but NerdWallet CEO Tim Chen believes that the huge pile of cash will help attract the best talent. Since 2014, eight US startups have raised Series A rounds in excess of $50m.
