The Board of Directors of CU*SOUTH has voted to approve a 4.31% dividend to the credit union owners of the CUSO.
“CU*SOUTH continues to increase both the amount and the rate of our Class A share dividend each year,” says CEO Leo Vaulin. “This is the highest dividend we’ve paid since we began offering shares to credit unions, steadily increasing the book value of our Class A shares by over 370% in the past 7 years.”
