DALLAS, TX--(Marketwired - Oct 24, 2013) - HousingWire and BankDATAWORKS.com announced today they have agreed to bring complete data on all U.S. banks and U.S. banking markets directly to HousingWire's hundreds of thousands of readers. The new data offering will be HousingWire's first under a new platform designed to offer readers a rich set of industry-relevant data options.
"This is an exciting time to be a media company in the mortgage banking industry, and we're honored to partner with a company like BankDATAWORKS," said Paul Jackson, Publisher and CEO at HousingWire.
"Our readers have long valued the information we provide them, and with this new program, we're building on our news platform to include critical data that can drive business decisions."
Under terms of the agreement, HousingWire readers will be able to purchase complete quarterly financial and other data covering every FDIC-insured bank and thrift in the U.S., as well as decision maker names and contact information on each bank. Reports will be available at National, Regional, State and Local market levels.
Subscriptions will be sold on an annual basis, with data reports updated quarterly.
"We think we've developed some of the most unique reporting on U.S. banks and thrifts available in the market today, especially in an easy-to-use format," said Justin Barr, President at BankDATAWORKS. "We're excited to partner with HousingWire and bring this important data to a much broader audience."
"As the mortgage industry shifts, knowing who is making mortgage loans, managing loans, and who is holding loans that have gone bad is critical business intelligence," said HousingWire President Richard Bitner, "Doubly so for many of the nation's smaller banking institutions, which comprise the vast majority of the U.S. banking system."
The HousingWire/BankDATAWORKS products are expected to be available for sale on the HousingWire.com website later this year.
