WASHINGTON, DC (February 12, 2021) —
Assets under management in the Trust for Credit Unions (TCU), the oldest and largest mutual fund family created for and by credit unions, continue to set new records. The two TCU bond funds, the Ultra-Short Duration and Short Duration Portfolios had total combined assets of $3.61 billion as of February 11, 2021.
“We’ve already welcomed a record number of new credit union investors in the opening weeks of 2021 and look forward to serving more of the industry as we build on our 30-year history of performance,” said Jay Johnson, President of TCU. “TCU is here to provide credit unions with the institutional investments they need, whenever they need them.”
