CU Companies was founded in 1987 by three Minnesota Credit Unions to offer a competitive mortgage solution for their members.
They realized that by combining forces, they could offer a superior product to their membership than if they did it alone. These three Credit Unions created a Credit Union Service Organization (CUSO), CU Mortgage Services, Inc. in which they shared equal ownership.

Over the years, other Credit Unions recognized that their membership could also benefit from the CUSO and purchased stock in the organization. As the number of owners grew, they realized there were other areas of expertise that could be leveraged to provide an even greater product offering to their members. Over the next several years, five additional subsidiaries were created and CU Mortgage Services, Inc. became CU Companies.  

  • Mortgage Services - created in 1987
