The Difference With Community Banks

For this interview, Michael Graham, CFP® sits down with Anne Schutt to hone in on the key differences and advantages that community financial institutions have compared to larger banks. They tackle and debunk the misconception that banks and credit unions have around consumer wealth, underestimating the power of marketing to members on a community level. Anne highlights how big banks can get complacent in reaching out to potential customers, which can lead them to lose out on these customers in the long run.
