Taxpayers and investors increasingly need to stay informed on the shifting economy
Charlottesville, VA (Vocus) February 12, 2009
SNL Financial today launched the Government Bailout Program Resource Center on its external Web site (http://www.snl.com), providing free access to comprehensive data and analysis on the Treasury's Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) and other government relief efforts.
Last month, SNL announced the launch of its Financial Relief database, available exclusively to SNL Unlimited subscribers. Due to the growing public demand for information related to the government's programs, SNL has made portions of its comprehensive database available on its free Web site, including:
- Current list of the 25 largest TARP participants, along with key financial metrics and amount offered
- SNL TARP Participant Index, consisting of all financial institutions receiving TARP funds (regardless of size); plus access to the SNL Bank & Thrift Index and SNL Financial Institutions Index for comparison
- Detailed news and exclusive commentary from SNL's reporters and analysts
- SNL's Government Bailout Quick Reference guide, with complete explanations of the various government-sponsored programs
"Taxpayers and investors increasingly need to stay informed on the shifting economy," said Adam Hall, Director of SNL's Financial Institutions Group. "SNL publishes more news and data on the financial institutions involved in the bailout than any other information provider, and we're now happy to share greater insight into the government's programs with the public at large and the general media."
In addition to this free information on SNL.com, subscribers to SNL's paid Unlimited service receive additional access to a full list of TARP participants, TLGP debt issuances and transaction account participants, plus the SNL TARP Participant Index, with five years of historical performance and aggregated financials.
