MoneyRates.com has kept consumers apprised of bank rates and trends since 1999, and the centerpiece of its data collection effort today is the MoneyRates Index. The MoneyRates Index, or MRI, is a representative sampling of U.S. banks that powers many of the site's most popular features.
The MRI consists of 100 U.S. banks, including the 50 largest banks by deposits and 50 smaller banks. The staff at MoneyRates.com regularly examines and updates the list to ensure that the MRI captures as accurate a representation of the larger U.S. banking landscape as possible.
The MRI supports such MoneyRates.com features as:
- Bank Fees Survey, which measures trends in banking fees.
- America's Best Rates, which identifies top-yielding U.S. bank accounts.
- Best Savings Accounts, which tracks savings accounts over time to highlight high-performing banks.
- Best and Worst States for Banking, which ranks U.S states according to banking conditions.
MoneyRates.com believes that reliable data can help consumers make better choices, and the MoneyRates Index is just one of the ways it provides relevant and timely research on the world of banking.
