How secure is my money?

Thamesbank Credit Union is part of the Financial Services Compensation Scheme and members’ savings up to £85,000 are therefore protected.

We invest any funds that are not being lent to other members. Any surplus that the credit union makes will be split roughly into three areas. Firstly there is a duty for all credit unions to develop reserves and a percentage of any surplus made will always go into the reserves of the credit union. Secondly, the credit union Directors may wish to put part of any surplus into developing the credit union or its products and services. Lastly, any remaining monies will be returned to savers in the form of a dividend.
