Union Bank Homework Center

Credit unions have a lot in common with banks, but there are significant differences, too. Unlike banks, credit unions are not-for-profit financial institutions that are owned by their members, which gives them some advantages over banks.

There are three primary sources for auto loans: dealerships, banks, and credit unions. They have some things in common, but understanding their differences will help you get into the new or used car that best suits your needs.

There are two basic reasons that dealer-arranged financing is attractive. First, dealers often specifically market to customers with compromised credit or a poor credit history. A dealer has numerous lenders at their disposal who offer products for customers struggling to get direct financing from a traditional bank or credit union. In short, they can shop around until they find a lender who will take you on even if you are a risk. But be warned: the terms of these loans often have pitfalls, specifically higher interest rates.

However, the big con for obtaining your financing through a bank is that the interest rates they offer are often higher than the national average. Large, national banks tend to run 10-percent above average and regional banks run 24-percent above average, while credit unions typically offer rates 19-percent below the national average.

Even though a traditional bank can be an excellent choice for financing your new wheels, you may be in better hands at a local credit union. Banks are in the business of making money for the shareholders at the top, which can translate into interest rates that are not as competitive as those at a credit union, where the member is also an owner. Remember, a credit union like Spero is a not-for-profit institution that is not trying to make money off you, but rather working with you to build a long-term win-win relationship based on the best financial health of all parties. Their interests are, quite literally, your interests.

Not only do credit unions often offer lower interest rates than traditional banks, but they are more flexible when it comes to considering your story. If your credit history has been compromised, a credit union is not as likely to simply dismiss you as a two-dimensional, high-risk customer. While the car loan process and underwriting are similar for the two institutions, credit unions are often willing to listen to your specific scenario. They will consider extenuating circumstances and emergencies that all of us can encounter. A credit union is open to making adjustments and tweaks to the loan product to set you up for success.

Some of the types of banks include central banks like the Federal Reserve Bank of the USA, commercial banks, Credit unions, and investment banks. Commercial banks are usually chartered by the states where they are operating and are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation(FDIC). The credit unions accounts are created and owned by members who use its services while being managed by a board of directors. Accounts holding up to $250,000 in credit unions are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund(NCUSIF). The investment banks are regulated by the Securities and Exchange Commission and carry out functions like trading commodities, handling securities, preparing the acquisition of mergers and conducting foreign transactions. Commercial banks are financial institutions authorized by states to operate and can be categorized into public sector banks, foreign banks, and private sector banks.

Banking systems comprises all institution that operates by accepting deposits and lending out finances to gain profit. They include; commercial banks, central banks, credit unions, and investment banks.

A banking system refers to a collection of a network of institutions that provides financial services to the people. The following are some of the institutions that belong to the banking system; central banks, commercial banks, internet banks, investment banks, savings and loan associations, insurance companies, and credit unions.

Credit unions are non-profit institutions owned by members who use their financial services. They are run and managed by a board of directors. Members can access services offered by traditional banks like checking services, credit cards, savings, and loans. In the United States, these institutions with accounts holding up to $250,000 are insured by the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund(NCUSIF).Some of the largest credit unions include; Randolph-Brooks Federal Credit Union, Alliant Credit Union, and Golden 1 Credit Union.

Unlike commercial and national banks, credit unions are not-for-profit organizations owned by members and overseen by a board of directors. Many credit unions have membership restrictions and are only open to specific individuals and their families, such as employees of certain companies, religious institutions, or school districts; members of labor unions, or those serving in, or retired, from the military. Credit unions offer many of the same services found at commercial and national banks; accounts up to $250,000 are insured by the FDIC and the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund (NCUSIF).

Let's review! A banking system is a group or network of institutions that provide financial services. The major types of banking systems include those made up of commercial, national, and investment banks and credit unions may also be part of a banking system. The function of a banking system depends on the type of banks in its network.
