Sheshunoff Information Services and Moody's Investors Service said Monday that they would launch a comprehensive data base for every publicly traded bank and thrift in the nation.
Scheduled to be available in early November, the data base - Sheshunoff Publicly Traded Banking Companies - is to include financial data and selected fixed-income information. It is intended to meet the information requirements of banking and investment professionals.
The data base will incorporate debt ratings as well as stock information from Muller Data, consensus earnings estimates from First Call Corp., and information about insider holdings from CDA Investment Technologies Inc.
Sheshunoff, Muller, First Call, and CDA are units of Thomson Financial Services, which also owns American Banker.
The service was announced at American Banker's annual Mergers and Acquisitions Conference in New York, at which Sheshunoff also launched an M&A data base.
