Credit Unions are an international organisation who put their member’s needs before the needs of shareholders as they don’t have any. Credit Unions are run on a “not for profit” basis so you get the benefit on our expertise and profits. Any profit made is given back to the members as a Dividend based on how much you have saved. This together with the way we help the community and members makes Credit Unions an ethical way to save.
By becoming a member of a credit union you get the right to vote on all the matters at the Annual General Meeting which is held once a year.
