Anatomy Of Utah First FCU

The ANATOMY series is a quarterly, multi-feature profile that explores the strategies and analyzes the performance of an exemplary credit union.

Utah First FCU is a mid-size cooperative that does its business in one of the most competitive markets for financial services in the country. To differentiate itself among peers, the credit union has tailored its products, services, and training to better serve a blue-water population of members, those accustomed to hearing no from other financial institutions. This strategy allows Utah First to reach more members in its local markets and sets the cooperative on a path toward self-sustaining success.
