Alliance FCU Changes to State Charter and Private Share Insurance

Alliance Federal Credit Union (Lubbock, TX) switched from a federal charter to a state charter and changed from federal share insurance to private share insurance provided by American Share Insurance.

According to Scott Rose, President and CEO of the $245 million Alliance FCU, one of the main reasons he and his board of directors chose to convert to American Share was the simple fact that the role of the regulator and insurer needs to be differentiated.

Another key factor in the credit union's decision to move to a state charter, and to partner with American Share Insurance, was that they wanted to be regulated by local government officials that better understand the needs of Texas residents.

This is the third Texas-based credit union to join American Share Insurance in the last 18 months.
