Press Room

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (November 04, 2020) – USE Credit Union (USECU) has announced a partnership with Advisor Group and Securities America to relaunch and expand their investment services offerings to members. The updated USE Investment Services allows thousands of families across California enhanced support for financial planning and saving for the future.

USECU’s partnership with Securities America provides members with access to expanded services such as stocks, bonds and mutual funds; competitive annuity and insurance products; and online account access at any time. The Investment Services team now consists of three financial advisors – two located in the San Diego county area and one located in Northern California – who can work with USECU members to develop a personalized financial plan.

“At USECU, being able to offer our members exceptional financial planning and investment services fits seamlessly within our broader mission of helping them map a path to their dreams,” said Todd Tharp, chief financial officer at USECU. “We’re thrilled that our partnership with Priority Financial Group and Securities America will better enable us to empower our members with industry-leading technology, support and services that can help them work toward the future of their dreams.”

Securities America is part of Advisor Group, the nation’s largest network of independent wealth management firms. USECU has affiliated with Securities America through Priority Financial Group, a registered investment advisor based in Phoenix.

“It has been great working with the team at USE Credit Union,” said Priority Financial Group chief executive officer Mike Prior. “Our first priority was working with the Credit Union to help ensure their members have access to expert financial advice.”
