  1. How common is it for banks to get acquired by credit unions? Has it become more common in recent years?

    1. While a credit union acquisition of a bank remains rare, it has become more common in recent years.

  2. Is there a regulation stopping a bank from acquiring a credit union?

    1. NCUA regulations permit a bank to acquire a credit union. However, the rules are very burdensome. Check out my November 10, 2015 post.
