Most of us have questions and concerns about financial planning.  How do you know if your bank or credit union is financially stable? Which insurance company should you pick to protect yourself and your loved ones?  What mutual funds give you the best returns?  To help begin to answer these questions and others, the Spring Lake District Library is providing a new resource for our patrons: Financial Ratings Series Online.

Combining the strength and track records of Weiss Ratings and The Street Ratings, Financial Ratings Series Online gives you important financial literacy tools:

  • Independent, unbiased financial strength ratings of banks, credit unions, & insurance companies
  • Conservative Buy-Hold-Sell ratings of thousands of common stock and mutual funds.
