PMA Funding Debuts New Bank Funding Website

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - PMA Funding™ (PMA), a leading provider of bank deposit and funding solutions, announced the launch of its redesigned website today. www.pmafunding.com aims to extend the reach of PMA's diverse product lineup and be a valued resource for the nation's 8,000 community banks.

"The launch of the new website is an exciting time for PMA and banks across America," said Jim Lutter, senior vice president trading and operations of PMA Financial Network, Inc.
