Acquiree Services

Data-Driven Acquiree Services

At CUCollaborate, we leverage advanced data analysis to ensure that every merger benefits the members of the acquiree credit union. Our innovative approach involves examining the member and loan files of each credit union, enabling us to assess how well prospective acquirers would serve the acquiree's members.

Using this data-driven analysis, we calculate key metrics such as the percentage of members who would receive loans from the acquirer and the expected interest rates. This allows us to determine which acquiree's business model would create the most value for its members post-merger.

By prioritizing the needs and interests of the acquiree's members, we ensure that every merger is not only strategically sound but also enhances the overall member experience.
