CUNA Brokerage Services, Inc. (CBSI) for Credit Unions
Establishing an investment relationship with your credit union members means you serve them better. Their loyalty increases and they’re far more likely to have a first mortgage or a vehicle loan through the credit union.
Yet, despite placing more trust in a credit union-backed brokerage than other full-service investment firms, only about 3% of members (on average) participate in their credit unions’ wealth management programs.*
What accounts for this gap?
- Fear about the process. Members can feel intimidated about investing and financial planning.
- Perceived complexity. Many feel the complexities of products, markets and strategies are too difficult to understand.
- Uncertainty about access. Some members don’t know where to turn or how to get help. In fact, 54% of members don’t know if their credit unions offer an investment program.*
