Looking for liquidity? We have options
By: Perry Jones, VP, Portfolio Manager

Perry Jones One of the beauties of our cooperative system is the mechanism credit unions put together through their corporates to assure adequate liquidity – both for short-term needs, such as settlement, and for longer-term borrowing. In fact, providing easy, inexpensive funding was a major reason credit unions founded corporates more than three decades ago. Whether you need overnight funding to cover the day’s clearings or longer-term funding to support loan growth, Corporate One’s liquidity offerings are tailored to serve your needs. READ MORE +

for the month of Sept. 2013
With the summer doldrums coming to an end, let’s hope the autumn leaves fall on a brighter economic landscape. It’s not that the hot and hazy days of the just-concluded season were excruciatingly bad. They just failed to live up to the more optimistic expectations. The Federal Reserve, for one, expected the mid-point of 2013 to be some sort of a launching pad, propelling the economy into a higher gear following a four-year struggle out of the Great Recession. But instead of taking off and allowing policy makers to taper its bond-buying program, the growth engine sputtered in July and August. The monthly pace of job creation slowed, consumers cut back spending on most everything but autos and even the stalwart housing revival showed signs of fraying. In response, the Fed on September 18 announced that it would stay the course, keeping bond purchases at the prevailing $85 billion monthly pace until the economy shows more strength. To be sure, this is not the first time during the recovery that the optimists have been disappointed. In each of the past three years, economists and policy makers expected the growth engine to rev up only to see the ignition stalled by some external event – an oil-price spike, geopolitical turmoil, a sovereign debt crisis or a fiscal debacle in the U.S., among the more prominent growth obstacles. This time, however, the skies were relatively tranquil. Indeed, the main threat – an abrupt turn to fiscal austerity – had less of a negative impact on the economy than expected during the first half of the year. With the effects of the tax hikes and sequester set to fade, the stage was set for the economy’s growth engine to kick into higher gear over the second half of the year.
