Metro Credit Union documents their leadership position regarding safe consumer investing


Having steered clear of the subprime mess, credit unions are poised for growth

Chelsea, MA — May 22, 2009 – Metro Credit Union, Chelsea, MA-based credit union with offices across Eastern Massachusetts, has made available through their website a document entitled, “Metro Credit Union: Secure and Strong”. In this document, Metro Credit Union illuminates the economic advantages of credit unions and in particular, how Metro Credit Union, by providing excess insurance in Massachusetts, protects their depositors far beyond the protections afforded by other commercial banks and the FDIC. In addition, Metro Credit Union details their capitalization strategies that create a larger capital cushion than do typical commercial banks.

This is good news for consumers everywhere, but particularly for personal banking customers across Massachusetts. Having shaken the banking industry to its core, consumers rightfully are looking for protections from risk exposure across many financial channels. Deborah Spearing, a National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Insurance Analyst, has been quoted as saying, “Not one penny of insured savings has ever been lost by a member of a federally-insured credit union. In these uncertain economic times, people are looking for a safe, sound place to invest their hard-earned money and a credit union is just that place.” In addition, as a non-profit cooperative financial institution, Metro Credit Union typically offers higher savings rates than banks.
