You’ve likely heard about the recent collapse of two large mainland banks, Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank. In light of this news, we want to assure you that your deposits are safe with Maui County Federal Credit Union.
Silicon Valley Bank was a niche bank serving a particular set of customers within the technology industry, including innovative tech start-ups, entrepreneurs, and venture capital firms. The bank was focused on a limited sector, which significantly increased its risk profile. Signature Bank was a New York financial institution with a big real estate lending business that had recently made a play to win cryptocurrency deposits
While this situation does not include any credit union failure, we want to provide you with peace of mind when it comes to your savings at Maui County Federal Credit Union, where we are committed to serving our Maui community. Our first priority is your financial well-being, and focusing on financial security.
