CNBC.com column Expect a rush to join CUs
NEW YORK (12/30/08)--A columnist for CNBC.com predicts that 2009 will bring a rush to join credit unions.

He listed credit unions as No. 2. “Little or no exposure to subprime mortgages, no shareholders to impress every three months and plenty of money to lend seems like a trifecta to me,” Ulzheimer said. “Add to that the same level of insurance for your deposits and overall better treatment of their members compared to that of the large banks and this is a slam dunk,” he added.
