American Banker is the leading information resource serving the banking and financial services community.
The daily print edition of American Banker was first published in 1835. Its online counterpart has been live since 1996.
Together, these resources set the agenda for a fast-changing industry, keeping a close eye on large and small institutions, tracking traditional and insurgent forces, parsing the business models of diversified and specialist players.
American Banker.com, relaunched on October 1, 2007, is a complete information platform for banking professionals and the primary online destination for SourceMedia's Banking Group. The site is organized into vertical market segments and also contains the home pages of our sister publications American Banker Magazine and Bank Technology News.
At the heart of AmericanBanker.com is our exclusive, market-leading coverage, including feature and analytical articles, data applications, and special reports. This first-rate journalism, created by an award-winning editorial staff located in eight cities nationwide, is supplemented by a top-tier roster of information partners, such as Dow Jones Newswires, Bloomberg, PR Newswire, Accuity, Informa Research, SNL Financial, and Institutional Risk Analytics.
At a time when professionals are confronted with more news sources than they have time to digest, American Banker recognizes its responsibility to put information in context. To maintain this high standard, American Banker's editors cultivate a close understanding of their readers' interests and demands. Every story we select and edit is informed by this knowledge.
Since 1980, American Banker has taken home more than 20 editorial prizes, including the Loeb Award for Distinguished Business & Financial Journalism; the Polk Award; the American Society of Business Press Editors' National Journalism Award; the PRSA Award for Excellence in Technology Journalism; and The Jesse H. Neal Award for Best News Coverage in 2000.
