Cubus Solutions Newsletter: July 2015


All Bull. No Bubble.

We see tech startups popping up all over the place. Darlings of Finnovate. Touted as the next BIG thing by pundits that don’t have to risk their careers buying untested technology. Not a week passes without a tech startup earning a $1 billion valuation from venture capitalists, so becoming a “unicorn” in tech parlance. There are now more than 100 such firms, many of them in the financial technology space. It took Google years to mark that plateau and they didn’t hit it until after going public. Now the same pundits are saying that these crazy valuations could be the prescience of a bubble. I think some of these unicorns are just horses with sticks taped onto their head. Really? There are a few lessons here. Let’s go back to the basics. Real companies will always survive over the long haul, i.e. those with real products that solve real problems for real customers and earn real revenue. Patience pays off. Rome wasn’t built in a day. And if there is a bubble, we must all learn from the basics. At Cubus, we just keep doing what we do well, and continuously strive to do better. To solve problems. To service our customers. To adapt to the times. We’re real like that. Not a unicorn, just a strong bull.

Millennials and Credit Unions Go Together

Forbes reported on a recent study from T. Rowe Price which found that millennials are more savings conscious than their counterpart generations. In the study, 74 percent said they are more comfortable saving and investing money rather than spending it. The report says that millennials have a Depression-era mindset largely because they experienced market volatility and job security issues very early in their careers, or watched their parents experience them, and it has had a significant impact on their attitudes and behaviors. The millennial generation are savers, they embrace the co-op nature of a credit union, and they think hyper-local. They see the benefits of belonging to a credit union. Appeal to any of these characteristics through your marketing campaign and you are sure to see some movement.
