"We created Personal Capital to bring 'digital wealth management' to affluent American families," said CEO Bill Harris. "It's a new way to handle your investments, combining award-winning personal finance software with conflict-free advice from a team of financial advisors who know the personal needs of each client."

"There are too many high-cost, tax-inefficient, poorly constructed investment products being sold today. Finally, there's a place you can go to get unbiased data and advice," said Mark Goines, a strategic advisor to the company since its founding and no stranger to innovation. Goines has worked with seven of the Top 50 Disruptor companies.

To build the list, CNBC collected over 500 nominations from industry experts and technology cognoscenti, including the National Venture Capital Association. After months of rigorous research and both quantitative and qualitative metrics, they ranked Personal Capital as one of the world's most important Disruptors.

Personal Capital's mission is to make the world safe for investors. In a short time, more than 500,000 people have signed up to use its free online personal finance software on the web, iPad, iPhone and Android phones and tablets.
