Allegacy Investment Group reaches milestone growth achievement

WINSTON-SALEM, NC (March 30, 2015) — Allegacy Federal Credit Union announced today its investment division, Allegacy Investment Group, available through CUSO Financial Services, has surpassed the $1 billion mark in assets under management (AUM).

“This is a tremendous milestone for Allegacy and its members,” said Steven W. Franke, CFP, Program Manager, Allegacy Investment Group. “We are thankful for the confidence our clients have in our phenomenal team of advisors doing what they love and in the best interest of our members.”

Allegacy Investment Group serves members all over the country and Franke credits the achievement to several factors, including a steady growth rate. Allegacy ended 2008 with nearly $446 million in assets under management. Since then it had an average growth rate of 14%, breaking the $1 billion mark on February 25th. On an asset penetration ratio, the investment group’s AUM is almost 100 percent of the credit union’s assets.

“The success of our investment group is rooted in the vision of our former CEO Ike Keener and the unwavering support of Cathy Pace, our current CEO,” said Franke. “Throughout the years, their focus has always been on building strong, enduring relationships with our members and doing what’s in the best interest of the member.”

Allegacy’s continued growth and success is due to the corporate wide attention to individual needs in every aspect of their financial path. Whether that is a young person just opening a checking account or a seasoned investor, our management and staff are dedicated to providing the financial knowledge and needs of our members, helping them make smart financial choices, in whatever stage of life.”
