At Freedom First CU, People 'Bank for Good'
Walt: Thank you for your entry encouraging credit unions to “get in the(mobile) game.” CO-OP Financial Services could not agree more. Every market study is arriving at the same finding – U.S. consumers are conducting financial transactions using their mobile phones. Even more importantly, younger adults – a prime target for new members – say that they can't imagine life without their mobile devices. Credit unions have a tremendous opportunity to attract and retain members with mobile services, and there is equal risk in not doing so. Caroline Willard, EVP, CO-OP Financial Services.
The biggest risk for credit unions today is simply doing nothing. Allowing members to find third parties for wallet solutions welcomes the risk of disintermediation. The CU then becomes a transaction processing commodity.
Mobile banking has come a long way. But I have to wonder why credit unions are not using their mobile platform for marketing purposes? I've asked many of my clients this question and the answer I hear most often is that their mobile platform provider hasn't developed that functionality yet. Are we missing BIG opportunities here?
This is a great list, but falls short. Consider the myriad of other risks that can bring the credit union to its knees: Technology risks including viruses, trojans, data breaches and other forms of security compromises. People risks, including disgruntled employees, social engineering attempts, social unrest, prison breakout, social media entries that also affect the mentioned reputational risk. Environmental risks, which could include derailed or overturned chemical tankers,blizzards, hurricanes, tornados, sink holes (save the Corvettes!), earthquakes, mudslides, forest fires. Leaders always need to be asking themselves, "What could stop us from performing our mission?" A solid crisis management organization, coupled with a realistic, exercised business continuity plan is vital to ensure continued operations.
