Credit Union

Preparing for Tomorrow

The Credit Union sector in Ireland is facing a changing economic and regulatory landscape.

Our dedicated team has identified the following six strategic challenges that will continue to impact the performance of Credit Unions throughout the country:

  • Consolidation activity within the sector;
  • Regulatory landscape;
  • Corporate governance;
  • People strategy and organisational structure;
  • IT investment;
  • Attracting new members.

  • Co-sourced or outsourced risk based internal audit;
  • Strategic reviews;
  • Due diligence;
  • Corporate Governance workshops;
  • Talent recruitment and development;
  • Information and Communications Technology systems assessment;
  • Process evaluation and definition;
  • Marketing strategies;
  • External audit;
  • Loan book reviews, investment reviews and fixed asset impairment reviews;
  • Debt management mediation services.

Do you know what data your Credit Union holds?

29 January 2018
Board members and the management of Credit Unions can often underestimate the volume of member data that they hold. This may mean understanding the potential impact of the imminent General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We take a look at some of the sources and locations of data that can be forgotten about in our latest flyer.

Are you ready for the new legislation?

15 February 2017
At the moment, Irish data protection obligations are primarily governed by the Data Protection Act 1988 as amended by the 2003 Act. However, there is a new law coming into force that will impact your Credit Union.
