Increase your Branch Network to 5,000 Overnight

Members require convenience from their financial institution. What if your branch network could grow to over 5,000 branches with minimal capital investment and time? Credit unions can do just that by joining CO-OP Shared Branching, the fourth largest branch network among financial institutions.

Through Strategic Link, your credit union can offer members the convenience of thousands of branches nationwide. As a participant, your members will be able to use other member credit union facilities to conduct transactions just as if they were at their own credit union’s branch. A variety of services are available, including:

  • Deposits and withdrawals
  • Transfers between accounts
  • Account/loan Inquiries
  • Loan payments
  • Money orders/gift cards
  • Statement prints
  • Extended hours of access
  • And more

If you have any doubt that consumers still don’t know about the conveniences of shared branching and networked ATMs, check out the comments made in a recent video, shared this week on the Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) Facebook page.

Providing locations where your members work, travel, shop and live helps your credit union grow by providing the convenience needed to attract and retain members. Additionally, you have the ability to earn revenue by accepting guest members into your facility. At a fraction of what it costs to build proprietary brick and mortar, shared branching is the answer for credit unions looking to offer their members optimal branch convenience.
