Banks & Credit Unions

Managing your finances is serious business. In an era of Too Big to Fail, it’s worth noting that our locally owned banks and credit unions still put customers first. While a few big names dominate the national landscape, nearly 91 percent of all U.S. banks are still small, with less than $1 billion in assets.

Don’t forget those member-owned credit unions. The February 2012 issue of Consumer Reports concludes that many larger credit unions and smaller banks have expanded services to match what you’ll find at a big bank – but on average, they charge consistently lower fees. And, your deposits are still insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. or the National Credit Union Administration.
