New data from reports that credit union members want more innovative products and they are willing to take their accounts to other financial institutions to find it. Today, 27 percent of members say they would switch where they keep their financial accounts to find product innovation, and this figure has been increasing steadily for four years. Our goal at Bankjoy is to help our clients not just keep up with member and account holder demands, but exceed their expectations. By launching the client advisory board, I’m confident we can achieve this and find new opportunities to serve our valued clients, even as our client base evolves. This advisory board is meant to be a reflection of our customers and our team will leverage their valuable insights to continue building a superior banking platform that provides Bankjoy clients with a competitive market advantage.”
