Dwight Johnston Economics and Callahan Financial Services are partnering to provide a new daily economic commentary written specifically for credit union leaders. This complimentary service is available by registering at the Trust for Credit Unions website.
“In today's complex and fast-moving global economy, timely information is imperative,” said Dwight Johnston, president of the firm bearing his name. “Much commentary today is for a general audience. It is often difficult to interpret how events can impact the credit union business. That is the purpose of my daily column.”
Johnston is a speaker, writer and analyst with more than 30 years of experience in trading, portfolio management and economic forecasting. Johnston said his mission is to “demystify economics and the markets.”
“We are in an environment where members’ savings are coming in and investment options offer historically low yields. Dwight’s independent observations can help anyone think more thoroughly about the reasons for taking one action versus another,” said Chip Filson, president of the Trust for Credit Unions.
The Trust for Credit Unions is an SEC-registered, open-end mutual fund founded in 1987 by 20 credit unions. Today, more than 100 credit unions have invested $1.1 billion in TCU’s three funds.
