Executive Letter: Bankers Helping Bankers Platform, New Benefit for WBA Members
By Rose Oswald Poels
I’m pleased to announce that the Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA) is partnering with state bankers associations nationwide and data provider FedFis to offer access to Bankers Helping Bankers to WBA members.
Bankers Helping Bankers is a bankers only platform for collaboration and research. Through data tools and dynamic user groups, Bankers Helping Bankers provides community bankers with a knowledge base focused on bank technology and emerging Fintech companies, as well as hot topics such as cryptocurrencies, banking as a service, and direct digital banking.
In October 2021, the Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT) was the first state banking association to partner with FedFis, a provider of fintech data analytics and a strategy system which tracks financial, M&A, and vendor data (including technology vendors) on every bank and credit union in the United States. Since then, the exclusive, banker-only platform has been expanding to states across the nation.
Given the rapidly changing landscape of banking technology, it is hard to keep up through in-person events alone. Bankers Helping Bankers provides an additional way for bankers to connect with one another via forums and access a wide range of fintech data.
WBA continues to offer our WBA Connect and CEOnly/CFOnly peer groups that provide in-person and online networking for Wisconsin bankers only. Through the new collaboration with Bankers Helping Bankers, we aim to bring even more value to WBA members by offering an additional opportunity that lets bankers connect with their peers across the country, with a focus on banking technology.
If you or any member of your team would like to take advantage of the Bankers Helping Bankers opportunity, please fill out the form to gain access to the platform. You will receive an email within a couple of weeks with details on how to create your account.
