Everyone wants to be Number One. No one wants to come in second place — ask Al Gore. Except, that is, credit unions in their business strategy.

Since 1990 the total assets of all mutual funds have grown over five fold to a total of $5.0 trillion. Many credit union members use mutual funds as part of their savings or through 401K plans. But few credit unions have been able to develop programs that serve either a significant percentage of these members or their assets.

No one disputes that the world of financial services is changing. But when pressed to describe how the new world will look, most analysis begins to dry up.
