Market Rates Insight Webinar Reveals Number One Pricing Tactic that Gives Top 150 Banks an Advantage in Deposit Pricing

First in Series of Three Webinars Shows How Fluid Pricing Strategies Offer Smaller Institutions a Competitive Advantage while avoiding pricing errors.

SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (October 25, 2011) -- In the first of a series of educational webinars, Market Rates Insight, Inc. (, a leading pricing intelligence research firm that tracks rate and banking products for financial institutions, will reveal how top banking institutions use hidden tactics in pricing deposit products, and how smaller institutions can take advantage of these tactics to offer more competitive rates. The first of three free 20-minute executive webinars on The Top Three Deposit Pricing Tactics is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. ET this Wednesday, October 26. Contact to register.

In this presentation, Pat Townsley, Market Rates Insight’s Vice President of Business Development will demonstrate how smaller financial institutions often view rigid comparative rate data to contrast and compare competitive pricing for their deposit products. This happens when larger banks retire those deposit products and replace them with new products with more profitable terms or tiers, and product misalignment occurs.

To combat these tactics, Mr. Townsley will show how institutions can apply fluid, reporting that follows changing market trends and conditions.

The webinar series is free to any banking executive interested in competitive deposit rate research. For more information about the series and to register for the event, contact Pat Townsley at

Brits would rather become a Teacher than switch to any other Job

New research from careers advice and training service oneworklife identifies the careers UK workers most want to switch to.

London, UK, October 25, 2011 -- Given the choice, more Brits would switch to a job in teaching than any other profession, new research from training provider oneworklife has shown.

The survey of over 2000 UK full and part time workers revealed that nearly 1 in 5 (18%) UK workers hate their jobs and when asked what they would like to do instead, a career in education came out on top. Career switches to the fields of IT and Healthcare came in joint second place.

Differences in the responses between men and women also suggest that despite living in an age of supposed gender equality, women are still more drawn to the caring vocations than men.

For men, Information Technology careers would be the most popular move with nearly 12 per cent selecting that as their top option. However, a job in IT appeals to just 3.5 per cent of women.

The difference of opinion between genders is maintained when it comes to jobs in healthcare. 8.3 per cent of women would choose a job in the healthcare sector as opposed to just 4.3 per cent of men.

Jobs in construction didn't prove as popular, only just making it in to the top ten list of most popular career changes coming in behind becoming a farmer or gardener in 9th place and choosing to be a house husband or house wife in 8th place.

Other interesting findings from the survey include:

- The same percentage of respondents wanted to become a celebrity as wanted to join one of the armed forces (1.15%)
- More people wanted to become a professional sports person (2.35%) than work in politics (2.05%)
- Just over 1% of women and 0.5% of men would become a WAG if they could
- 18% of UK workers hate their jobs
- 21% of workers feel trapped in their current jobs
- 9.5% say their current job makes them unhappy even outside of work
- 17% of respondents see themselves as budding entrepreneurs and would like to run their own business rather than switch to any other ‘job’.

Trevor Field of oneworklife commented, “What’s clear from the research is that many British workers feel trapped in unfulfilling jobs or careers. We've created oneworklife to give people of all ages and from all walks of life the guidance they need to help them get their career on track. You don't have to plod on in a job you hate. With a little help and retraining you could be able to move to a better job with better prospects to give you a better life.”
