October Update from our Chief Executive
1 Oct 2014
The benefits for some are how we strive to make your banking transactions easier and put you in control of your money, giving you easier access by using our AccessDebit MasterCard, our Internet Banking or our latest offering - Mobile Banking. As you may be aware we launched our Mobile Banking App at the beginning of August and as I write this we already have 655 members that have downloaded the App and who are already managing their money via their mobile phone or tablet.
The benefits for other members are the great interest rates that we pay for on-call savings accounts and term deposits - we always strive to give a better interest rate than the banks to our depositing members.
And of course there are those members for whom we can assist with making their dreams come true by lending money for a much earned holiday, a car or even to help with buying a home.
Your Credit Union exists to make a real difference to the financial well-being of our Police family and we take this role and the responsibilities associated with it very seriously. We do this by how we interact with you, our members. We want to know what's going on with you and how that may be affecting your financial position - either positively or negatively. We are committed to increasing the financial literacy amongst our members and we work with our individual members in a personalised and respectful manner.
We believe that everyone has the right to fully understand their financial situation and to be able to positively affect it with targeted actions. In this issue of Bluenotes you will find some great tips from our members to make money go further. We have also been working very hard on creating a "Be Smart" section on our website which will be full of tips and ideas around being smart with money. We expect to be able to launch this in the middle of October, so watch this space!
As always, if you have any feedback, please contact me direct on 04 471 4850 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
