The real reason mobile rules

first_img 17SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr We’re paying so much attention to the medium that perhaps we’re missing the message.The rapid rise of smartphones and the matching rise in mobile banking transactions are too powerful to miss or dismiss.If mobile isn’t yet consumers’ preferred method for transactions, it soon will be, as evidenced by their thirst for remote deposit capture, intra-account transfers, and person-to-person payments. And it’s quickly becoming their favorite way to obtain information.Mobile banking use will double globally in the next four years, a new survey from KPMG predicts. And a growing number of consumers consider a credit union’s mobile banking service a key attraction.So if mobile is the medium, what is the message?Mobile banking is the nexus that will finally drive advice out of the branch, away from human advisors, and into members’ hands. continue reading »last_img read more

Senate demands answers from Uber over hack

first_imgLawmakers sent a letter to Dara Khosrowshahi, the chief executive of Uber, saying that the data breach, which the company paid hackers to cover up for about a year, “merits further scrutiny.”According to a news report in CNBC citing a group of senators, the lawmakers want more information on when the incident happened, the employees who were involved and the actions taken afterwards.“The nature of the information currently acknowledged to have been compromised, together with the allegation that the company concealed the breach without notifying affected drivers and consumers and prior privacy concerns at Uber makes this a serious incident that merits further scrutiny,” the senators wrote. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Using behavioral economics to increase member savings and loyalty – without matching funds

first_imgGetting members to save more is the holy grail for many credit unions. Nearly every financial institution has some sort of plan or program or course to tackle this problem…so why has it not been fixed?I’m sure you’ve heard the statistics: two thirds of Americans don’t have enough money in savings to cover a $1,000 emergency, forcing them to turn to credit cards, loans from friends or family, payday lenders, or other means to cover the costs. Did you also know that nearly a third of Americans will never have enough money to retire…and one survey found that almost half of financial planners do not even have retirement plans? Yikes!This led me to ask: why is it so hard for people to save money—and why do so many initiatives to encourage saving fail? Using Behavioral Economics To NudgeBehavioral economics is the study of how the brain actually makes decisions – from what to buy, when to save, and whether or not to recycle. Because 99% of choices are made by the subconscious brain, it is really running the show. Unfortunately, it isn’t always logical, and there are a lot of rules it uses that keep people from saving.The problem with existing programs is they are built on the premise of what people “should” do (instead of what they will actually do). The great thing about the field of behavioral economics is it helps us understand how the brain makes decisions – even when people can’t tell you themselves what they will do. So, I put my theories to the test and ran a study on behalf of the Filene Research Institute with Point West Credit Union in Portland, Oregon.Filene Research Institute StudyIn my last article for CUinsight, I talked about the concept of time discounting (or the “I’ll start Monday” effect, as I like to call it). This concept is a huge barrier against getting people to save. We know what we should do (eat better, exercise, save for retirement) but our brains have a hard time actually doing what is best. So, overcoming this phenomenon was key. The study included 240 members from Point West Credit Union, divided into three groups to see if those who received the full impact of behavioral economics nudges (carefully worded letter, emails and a refrigerator magnet to track their savings) would save more and have increased loyalty scores (tracked via Net Promoter Score). I’m so excited to share that those in the magnet group did save more and had their average NPS score increase from 8.05 to 9.20! Want to learn what we did, and some tips on how to run experiments in your credit union? Check out the full report now. 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Melina Palmer Why do people say one thing and do another?

Capital markets opening to credit unions

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr New territory is opening up for sophisticated credit unions: access to the capital markets, where long-term debts or equity-backed securities are bought and sold.Last year $2.3 billion GTE Financial, a federal credit union based in Tampa, Florida, tested the new option for credit unions to do securitizations and reports success.GTE Financial is usually a prodigious producer of automobile loans. In 2019, it originated $401 million of them, $305 million direct and $96 million indirect, according to CFO Brad Baker, a CUES member.That was more than the credit union wanted to keep, which would normally be about 35% of the portfolio. From 2014 through 2018, GTE Financial divested $202 million of automobile loans through participations, each ranging in size from $1 million to $23 million. continue reading »last_img read more
