The Credit Union of the 21st Century

As we approach the centennial of the passage of the US Federal Credit Union Act in 1934, the role of credit unions in providing secure, fair access to financial services remains as important as ever.

Many of the factors that animated the credit union system in the last century remain salient, but recent shifts—from changes in how people work, to increasing financial fragility and inequality, to technological innovations that have transformed how financial institutions interact with consumers—encourage us to reimagine the role that credit unions will play in the United States’ financial services landscape over the next decades.

During this presentation, participants will review the findings of recent research by the Filene Research Institute, obtained through a series of in-depth interviews with industry professionals, consultants, and regulators and an extensive examination of scholarly and industry literature. Together, participants will imagine a not too-distant operating and regulatory future for credit unions. The findings of this Filene research paint a future credit union landscape that is both enabled by technology and altered by changing economic conditions and consumer attitudes.
