'Rate Map' Compares Rates
The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues added a new membership benefit to its roster—RateMap, a unique mapping tool that lets member credit unions monitor, compare, and analyze key deposit and loan interest rates locally, throughout the state, and across the country.
In collaboration with League InfoSight and RateWatch, RateMap provides access to more than 90,000 branches nationwide for commonly offered deposit products and loan rates of more than 40,000 branches. Users can search rates by address, zip code, city, or state, and can further narrow their search results by institution type (credit union, bank, and Internet bank), product type, and rate.
Additional competitive data is also available, including website, number of branches, and customer/member reviews from sites such as Yelp.
Deposit rates and loan rates are updated weekly and monthly, respectively, to further assist member credit unions with their competitive analysis strategies, compare their rates with competitors, and pinpoint new market opportunities to help advance their revenue and profit goals.
