The credit union industry is searching for improved profitability but is falling into the trap of pursuing business lines and strategies that blur the distinction between banks and CUs. I submit that if CUs dilute their distinction from banks, banks will gain more market share with their vastly larger budgets and more extensive partnerships. I propose a different course.
