MADISON, WI – AUGUST 21, 2023 – CUNA Strategic Services is pleased to announce their new alliance with Goalsetter, the award-winning family financial education-focused spending, saving and investing platform.
CUNA Strategic Services chose to ally with Goalsetter because this collaboration will equip credit unions to offer world-class financial education resources to their member schools, community organizations and local communities.
"At CUNA Strategic Services, we prioritize our alignment with best-of-the-best credit union solutions providers after a rigorous selection process," said Barb Lowman, President, CUNA Strategic Services. "Capturing the next generation of consumers is an industry-must, and we believe Goalsetter's innovative financial education and savings platform is the best-in-class white label solution that empowers credit unions to meet this challenge head on."
According to research by Insider Intelligence, an estimated four million Gen Z individuals will open accounts annually through 2026. Winning the hearts and minds of this digitally native, social media-driven generation is vital for the future of credit unions. Goalsetter’s white-labeled solution provides tools designed to effectively capture and engage younger consumers with financial wellness content presented in a way that resonates with their social media-savvy sensibilities.
