Pool purchase participations (Mitigating Risk)

The advantages of loan participations to an originating/seller credit union are that the seller obtains liquidity to serve other members, has a tool to manage regulatory loan caps and spreads its lending risks. The advantage of loan participations to a buying credit union is the ability to earn a good return on assets.

Competitive rates

Non-for-profits and Cooperative organizations, in the financial space often choose to reinvest their profits back into programs, like lowering interest rates, minimum fees, etc.  Since credit unions work off of a different business structure, they are able to offer lower interest rates and reduce fees.
