CMutual and Filene Research Institute Partnership

Updated: Feb 23

CMutual and Filene Research Institute Announce Signing of Research and Strategic Insights Collaboration

Program delivers exclusive research, insight channels for Credit Union partners in the UK and Ireland.

The new Filene partnership will provide a gateway to Credit Unions to gain fast-track knowledge and insight on how other Credit Union sectors have managed many of the challenges that the UK and Irish sectors now face.

The new program will enable Credit Unions in the UK and Ireland;

  1. Direct access to over 25 years of existing Filene research, conducted on almost every aspect of Credit Union operations and strategy, through CMutual’s direct customer platform;

  2. Dedicated research symposiums and studies which will allow Credit Unions to benchmark and enhance business plans and strategies, based on knowledge and learning from other markets;

  3. The opportunity to attend CMutual/Filene Executive Leadership Conferences -- major platforms for positive engagement and learning.

“This is a major positive benefit for Irish Credit Unions as they continue to focus on the changing needs of members, the challenges and opportunities introduced by technology and regulation, and the ambitions of Credit Unions to grow membership by appealing to younger and more technologically demanding members,” said Paul Walsh, CEO at CMutual.

Tansley Stearns, Chief Impact Officer at Filene said, “We are thrilled to partner with CMutual on this exciting initiative. As well as making these materials available to our European Credit Union cousins, we look forward to working with those Credit Unions to mutually benefit from knowledge-sharing, research and translating insights into action. Credit Unions across the globe share common values that put the needs of members first.”
