DPC DATA Announces Distribution Agreement With TheMuniCenter

Fort Lee, NJ - 29 July 2010

Municipal Bond Disclosure Information and Customer Notification Workflow to be Integrated for Broker/Dealers and their Financial Advisors

DPC DATA, a leading provider of municipal bond disclosure data, research and data services, today announced an agreement with TheMuniCenter (TMC), the market leader for secondary municipal bond trading. TMC will offer DPC DATA’s MuniPOINTS® abstracts and MuniDOCS Online® document portal for use by financial advisors via its private label platforms.

“TMC’s goal is to offer its clients choice and completeness of information to meet point-of-sale and ongoing material event monitoring needs. As a municipal market leader, we chose to enhance our existing capabilities with DPC DATA’s respected offerings,” stated Thomas Vales, TMC’s CEO. Furthermore, “with DPC DATA, TMC is providing clients with reliable data and tools in the most convenient package possible. MuniPOINTS is an instant boost to a financial advisors’ daily efficiency, and enables them to meet their regulatory requirements while servicing clients more effectively.”

Designed for point-of-sale disclosure compliance, MuniPOINTS are easy-to-read deal summaries containing "just the facts" in bullet-point text, excerpted directly from the official statements with no analytical content. In addition, MuniPOINTS offers one-click access to all related primary and secondary market disclosure documents, including material event notices, via the MuniDOCS Online portal. When e-mailed by financial advisors to customers, MuniPOINTS documents make a clear statement that the dealer wants to offer added value content beyond basic data available via the MSRB’s Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA) system.

“Investment professionals need instantaneous access to actionable information and decision support tools to enable them and their customers to make better decisions and manage risk,” said Michael Ruvo, President of DPC DATA. “We are delighted that TMC has chosen DPC DATA as their preferred third party source of municipal disclosure information and risk-monitoring solutions.”
