Savings and loans through retailCU
When the sector was affected by the downturn, retailTRUST decided to invest in a credit union to support retail staff. The Retail Credit Union reduces reliance on high cost lenders and increases savings by providing its members with market-beating rates on savings and loans, delivered where possible by salary deduction. With a unique financial education remit, the Credit Union works to enhance the financial wellbeing of all its members.
