The article about credit unions’ future investment options (“Natural Person CUs Plunge Into DIY Investing,” Feb. 9 issue) correctly asks, “Who can you trust?” To a large degree, credit unions are currently placing their trust in firms, such as brokers, whose economic interests are contrary to their own. But the advice of someone compensated to sell you products can’t replace the need to have someone in your corner. Credit unions now have the choice of building those capabilities internally or, as the article suggested, minimizing their internal investment while gaining the same advantages by using a registered investment adviser.
