These criteria were selected by a survey of 1,000 U.S. adults as key considerations when choosing a financial institution."We strive to provide our members with the best products and services to help make their lives easier" said Jackie Buchanan, Genisys Credit Union president and CEO. "We are so grateful to be recognized by NerdWallet in their Spring 2014 Index."Published: Wed, Jun 04, 2014
