About

BankBeat.biz is the premier online source for timely or breaking community banking news. BankBeat.biz is the perfect complement to our monthly print magazine BankBeat (formerly NorthWestern Financial Review), which offers in-depth articles that analyze and inform the most important tends, topics and issues in the industry. The name BankBeat signals a renewed commitment to people who work in banking. When something is alive, it has a beat, and we believe banking is very much alive. In journalism, reporters cover a “beat,” and for us, the only beat is banking.
