Why Should You Refer Your Friends to the Credit Union?

posted in: Credit Union, Referral | 0

Refer Your Friends to the Credit UnionCredit unions are an important part of our community. The members of your credit union are your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors. They care enough about where they live to invest their money locally by keeping savings accounts and their other banking matters in the community.

The strength and stability of a credit union comes from its members. The more members a credit union has, the more value it can provide to the membership as a whole. As a credit union grows, it can offer better services at more competitive rates and with fewer or lower fees. That’s the power of community support.

To keep up in a crowded marketplace, credit unions need to grow. Corporate financial institutions do this by selling stock in their company. However, they’re less accountable to their customers and more accountable to investors and paid board of directors who probably live far away from the institution’s community. The constant drive to satisfy shareholders often propels the bank’s leadership to make decisions that may be immediately advantageous, but highly detrimental for the long term.

Compare this to credit unions, which are wholly owned by their members, who receive their shares of the revenue that is generated through better rates, lower fees, investments in technology and more.

When the credit union grows, the whole community benefits from its growth. We’re always looking to offer more and better services to our members. We want to continue to be the financial institution of choice for the community.
