Credit Union ONE and Hantz Financial Join Forces To Offer One Stop Shop Financial Services


Ferndale, Michigan – Credit Union ONE and Hantz Financial Services have joined forces to offer a wide range of investment, insurance, retirement, tax and estate planning services. This relationship expands the capabilities of Credit Union ONE to fully service its members, and expands the market reach of Hantz to current and future members of Credit Union ONE. 
 
Under this arrangement, Hantz advisors will lead a team of Credit Union ONE and Hantz specialists who will collaborate to deliver a full financial service experience for each member/ client.  The team approach allows for the development and design of a comprehensive plan that seamlessly integrates both Credit Union ONE and Hantz Financial services and products to produce results that achieve desired outcomes and goals. 
 
“We have offered financial planning services to our members for twenty-years with little success, considering our membership and asset size.   The one-off product sales approach simply does not fit our vision of the member experience and is inconsistent with our Core Values.  Members now have access to a team of experts who will deliver a remarkable experience.  This team approach is rarely seen in the banking arena, and we believe creates a compelling value proposition,” said Credit Union ONE President and CEO Gary Moody.
 
“We are very excited about joining forces with Credit Union ONE to be able to provide the opportunity of a one stop shop financial planning experience to their members,” said Hantz Group CEO, John Hantz.  “The Hantz Financial method of working with our team of experts to use a comprehensive approach in designing a financial plan and being able to offer all of the necessary services to implement the plan provides our clients with the convenience of having all of the information needed for decision making in one place.  It allows for the most successful outcomes.”

Credit Union ONE, headquartered in Ferndale Michigan for seventy-five years, offers a wide array of financial services and access to over 30,000 ATM’s nationwide, serving 110,000 members, with seventeen offices in three major metropolitan areas, including Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids and Traverse City.

Credit Union ONE Walks for Life

Representatives from Team Credit Union ONE ready for The Life Walk
Ferndale, Michigan – The 17th Annual Life Walk was held at Historic Belle Isle Park on Saturday, July 26, 2014, and for the second year Credit Union ONE was proud to take part in the celebration of life. 

The Life Walk is held annually to benefit and celebrate the Minority Organ Tissue Transplant Education Program (MOTTEP).  Giving the gift of life is a sacrifice that cannot be overlooked, and those whose loved ones help provide the ultimate gift are honored during the event.

MOTTEP reaches out to those in communities to create awareness and to encourage individuals to consider becoming an organ donor.  The organization places a special emphasis on education in minority communities where there is low donor participation. It also celebrates both the families of individuals who donated and to those who received organs.

This year Credit Union ONE had a team of 20 walkers/runners including Gary Moody, Credit Union ONE's President and CEO participating in the event.

“Meeting so many people and hearing their stories of being alive because of a transplant is overwhelming," said Gary Moody, Credit Union ONE President and CEO. Credit Union ONE is happy to be among those that support such a great cause - if you are not a donor you need to become one today.”

The MOTTEP Life Walk was a day filled with family, friends, food and fun.  Those attending all shared in the message that each one can extend life through organ and tissue donation with every step they take. 

 Credit Union ONE, headquartered in Ferndale Michigan for over seventy-five years, offers a wide array of financial services and access to over 30,000 ATM’s nationwide, serving 113,000 members, with seventeen offices in three major metropolitan areas, including Metro Detroit, Grand Rapids and Traverse City.
