Fostering credit union growth through Nativos Digitales

first_imgServing and understanding the nuances of the Hispanic marketplace has emerged in recent years as one of the credit union movement’s most successful growth strategies. While credit unions may most likely approach this strategy using their brick-and-mortar resources, I’ve experienced that using personal technology to reach the community’s nativos digitales must not be overlooked be an important tactic to consider.Nativos digitales is Spanish for “digital natives,” those younger generations who never knew life without personal technology at their disposal. Whether communicating with family and friends, shopping online or hailing an Uber, chances are these members are doing so on a cellphone or other personal device.Increasingly, the same holds true for financial service transactions across the entire cultural spectrum. In the case of nativos digitales, however, credit unions are realizing even greater returns.Institutions that successfully serve Hispanic members report a shift in the average age of those members to a younger demographic, one versed in personal technology. Since the future of credit unions rests on the shoulders of younger members, serving them in a way that’s preferable and convenient to their lifestyle is critical to continued credit union growth.U.S. credit unions have become very accustomed to technology, so it should be no surprise that some credit unions are using this technology to reach new segments of the population. Some even have effectively created virtual Spanish-speaking branches online, which operate as technological bridges between the credit union and Hispanic community it seeks to serve.Kern Schools Federal Credit Union, a Coopera client from Kern County, California, has been very successful in reaching its Hispanic membership by leveraging digital touchpoints. The $1.6 billion credit union uses technology to support its efforts to understand and embrace the local Hispanic community and its members.“We started marketing aggressively to Hispanics in January 2016 in partnership with Coopera,” says Michael George, senior vice president and chief marketing, innovation and advocacy officer. He added that the credit union was amazed that use of personal technology among Hispanics far exceeded that of other member groups.Kern Schools FCU’s experience is not unusual. Younger Hispanics almost universally prefer mobile devices such as cellphones, largely for the portability, cost, and immediacy—the way they understand the world. According to trends reported by the Pew Research Center, in fact, 80 percent of Hispanic men and women say they access the Internet via cellphone, tablet or other mobile device.  Of that group, usage among Hispanics age 18 to 29 tops out at 94 percent, with subsequent usage levels declining among older adult groups. “For us, mobile and online usage is up 40 percent among our membership,,” George says. “Our most recent Coopera study showed our Hispanic members are utilizing digital banking services at a slightly higher rate than our non-Hispanic members.”Kern Schools FCU’s mobile apps enable members to complete virtually any transaction the institution offers, from savings to checking to funds transfer to lending, including applying for mortgage loans. Since the services are offered online in both Spanish and English, the credit union also has seen an increasing number of new members across all demographic groups, although Hispanics lead the way.By working with Coopera , Kern Schools FCU has managed to tap into its nativos digitales and serve this segment in the way that is optimal for them. Many credit unions rely on their brick-and-mortar services to provide Hispanic outreach, but the digital channel should not be overlooked, as it may be your largest opportunity for driving growth among this young and tech-savvy audience. 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Victor Miguel Corro Víctor Miguel Corro is the CEO of Coopera, a consulting firm that helps credit unions formulate strategies to serve the Hispanic market.

NHL playoffs 2019: Goaltenders react to controversial interference call in Maple Leafs-Bruins

first_imgWow. I guess they must have felt Rask wasn’t gonna be able to come across but to me it doesn’t matter, contact was made and in my opinion should’ve been overturned.— Martin Biron (@martybiron43) April 20, 2019Six-year NHL veteran Mike McKenna, who suited up for the Flyers and Ottawa Senators during the regular season, was much more blunt.That was goalie interference in the BOS / TOR game. Period.— Mike McKenna (@MikeMcKenna56) April 20, 2019If somebody in the NHL league office takes up Talbot on his suggestion, one goalie has already thrown her name in for consideration. Buffalo Beauts netminder and two-time Olympic gold medalist Shannon Szabados offered her services to review interference plays from the league’s situation room.Offering my services to be the “someone that’s played the game in the blue paint” to be in the situation room to help review calls. @NHL get at me.RT for all the goalies that need some representation on goal reviews https://t.co/1c4NN5vVbR— Shannon Szabados (@ShannonSzabados) April 20, 2019It did not even take an hour for another controversial interference call to surface. Johnny Gaudreau of the Calgary Flames had a goal rescinded after it was determined Sam Bennett made contact with Avalanche goalie Phillip Grubauer. While the NHL has a rule for dealing with such calls, it’s clear the league needs a more consistent barometer to rate what is and is not considered interference. “I felt contact, so I went after the ref there and let him know there was contact,” Rask told reporters postgame. “They looked at it so it’s a goal. I saw him, he had the puck — as soon as he passed it, it kind of like bumped my head. But I trust them to get it right.”While Rask took a subdued approach in addressing the play, several professional goalies were more critical of the call.Philadelphia Flyers netminder Cam Talbot was the most prominent name to speak out, calling the review process for interference “flawed.”Once again the NHL goalie interference review is flawed. Someone that’s played the game in the blue paint should be in the situation room. Games are being lost in the playoffs and it’s not right. #inconsistent https://t.co/1DmPfnZC9K— Cam Talbot (@ctalbot33) April 20, 2019Martin Biron, who was an NHL goalie for 16 years and is now an analyst for MSG Networks, believed the goal should have been overturned. The Maple Leafs are up 3-2 in their first-round Stanley Cup playoff series with the Bruins after a 2-1 win Friday night. Auston Matthews’ fourth goal of the postseason was the difference.Matthews’ goal was not without controversy, however, as the marker was reviewed for potential goaltender interference. Toronto forward Zach Hyman made contact with Boston netminder Tuukka Rask before Jake Muzzin fed Matthews for the score.last_img read more
