Wisconsin Credit Union Makes Bid for Savings Bank
The $2 billion Landmark Credit Union of New Berlin, Wis., has filed applications with federal and state regulators to buy the $190 million Hartford Savings Bank, a state-chartered mutual savings bank in Hartford, Wis.
Landmark CU is the third credit union to make such a move this in the past year. In January, the $1.5 billion United Federal Credit Union in St. Joseph, Mich., completed its takeover of Griffith Savings Bank of Griffith, Ind. In June, the buyout of a New Hampshire savings bank, Monadnock Community Bank, by the $352 million GFA Federal Credit Union of Gardner, Mass., was approved by regulators.
