Liquidity Solutions

Ah, liquidity…the very thing corporate credit unions were built for! Needless to say, we haven’t forgotten our roots and are still very much prepared to offer credit unions assistance with liquidity. Whether you’re in need of more or have excess liquidity, let us help you find some middle ground with our liquidity solutions!

Central Liquidity Facility

The Central Liquidity Facility (CLF) is a mixed ownership government corporation within the NCUA. It is an instrument of the federal government that is owned by its member credit unions and managed by the NCUA board. The purpose of the facility is to improve the general financial stability of the credit union industry by providing member credit unions with a back-up source of liquidity.

Federal Reserve's Bank Term Funding Program

The Federal Reserve’s Bank Term Funding Program (BTFP) offers loans of up to one year in length to federally insured credit unions and other depository institutions pledging U.S. Treasuries, agency debt and mortgage-backed securities and other qualifying assets as collateral. Advances can be requested under the program until March 11, 2024. The program uses some existing discount window agreements and accounts, so the process is streamlined if your credit union already has discount window access.

Letters of Credit

The Corporate offers letters of credit to guarantee a credit union's financial obligation or contractual agreement with a third party.

Lines of Credit

Vizo Financial offers advised lines of credit to members at very competitive interest rates and without charging origination or legal fees. In addition, since we only grant loans to credit unions and credit union-related organizations, we can extend more generous lines.

Term Loans

Term loans are available to fund short or long-term liquidity needs with flexible maturities ranging from seven days to five years. We offer both fixed rate and variable rate term loans.

Loan Participations

LoanStreet offers a comprehensive online marketplace for all aspects of loan participations. Whether you're looking to reduce capital constraints or boost loan revenue, LoanStreet gives you the tools to buy, sell and manage your loan portfolio within a single platform.
