Creating a positive impact in the lives we touch since 1964.
Royal Credit Union was made up of just 100 Members when we were organized in April 1964 to serve the employees of Uniroyal and their families. In November of 1972, Royal was granted permission to add other employee groups to its membership; and over the next two years we did just that, bringing 27 new groups into the family. That popularity told us we were ready for a community charter.
With more than 190,000 Members today, on the surface we don't really look like we did when we just occupied a small office in a tire plant. But there are many, many things that have remained true from day one. These things are highlighted in our Core Values, which you will find here and posted in each of our offices. More importantly, you will find these Core Values instilled in each of our team members, who make sure to listen to your story and help you in any way they can.
Royal’s 12-Month Certificate rate is 1.51% APY*
versus 0.50% APY Market Average Certificate Rate in the Chippewa Valley*
versus 0.57% APY Market Average Certificate Rate in Minnesota Metro*
Royal’s Money Market ($10,000 - $24,999.99) rate is 0.95% APY*
versus 0.27% APY Marketing Average Money Market Rate in the Chippewa Valley*
versus 0.28% APY Marketing Average Money Market Rate in the Minnesota Metro*
Royal’s Savings Account is 0.80% APY*
versus 0.15% APY Market Average Certificate Rate in the Chippewa Valley*
versus 0.16% APY Market Average Certificate Rate in Minnesota Metro*
We think that is something worth smiling about, because for the last several years, rates of returns at many financials have held close to flat.
Since 2012, Royal has made a number of moves to not only keep deposit rates high and loan rates low, but also to reduce fees across the board. In that time, Royal has reduced or eliminated nearly 70 fees. Couple that with the top-tier rates on both loans and deposits, and Royal has a value proposition that’s second to none.
