President's Message November 2014

As the holidays approach and our lives become busy it’s important to enjoy this special time of year. UCCU wishes you the best and we hope you have a safe and delightful holiday season.

UCCU Prepares to Offer Apple Pay    

Many members have been interested in knowing if the credit union is onboard to offer Apple Pay – and the answer is yes. UCCU is in queue to provide Apple Pay as soon as Apple expands its service. So far we do not have timeline from Apple, but we will provide more information as we receive it.

 Some things to know about Apple Pay – so far the list of businesses that can and are willing to receive Apple Pay is very limited. These businesses must have near field communication (NFC) technology to accept this form of payment. The reality is that many businesses currently do not have this technology, and some of the business that do have refused to offer Apple Pay at this time – such as Wal-mart, Rite Aid, CVS, and others.

 UCCU believes that payments using a smartphone versus a traditional plastic debit or credit card is likely the future. The credit union will strive to adopt technology, including Apple Pay, as long as your information is protected. Our goal is to provide you with the most convenient way of making purchases and helping you stay protected along the way.

 For more information on how Apple Pay works, click here.

The credit union recently published the Smart Decision Magazine Fall edition. The magazine is filled with information to help you and your family be inspired to make smart decisions – both financial and life decisions. One of the great articles in this magazine is about how we can all help to stand up against bullying. This article written by Greg Hudnall, Executive Director of HOPE4UTAH. The article is informative and provides his expert advice to stop bullying in our schools and community.  Click here to view a digital version of the magazine.

Rebalancing Your Portfolio

Everyone loves a winner. If an investment is successful, most people naturally want to stick with it. But is that the best approach?  It may sound counter intuitive, but it may be possible to have too much of a good thing. Over time, the performance of different investments can shift a portfolio’s intent – and its risk profile. It’s a phenomenon sometimes referred to as “risk creep,” and it happens when a portfolio has its risk profile shift over time.

When deciding how to allocate investments, many start by taking into account their time horizon, risk tolerance, and specific goals. Next, individual investments are selected that pursue the overall objective. If all the investments selected had the same return, that balance – that allocation – would remain steady for a period of time. But if the investments had varying returns, the portfolio over time may bear little resemblance to its original allocation.

 How Rebalancing Works

Rebalancing is the process of restoring a portfolio to its original risk profile.  There are two ways to rebalance a portfolio. The first is to use new money. When adding money to a portfolio, allocate these new funds to those assets or asset classes that have fallen. For example, if bonds have fallen from 40% of a portfolio to 30%, consider purchasing enough bonds to return them to their original 40% allocation. Diversification is an investment principle designed to manage risk.  However, diversification does not guarantee against     a loss.

The second is to sell enough of the “winners” to buy more under-performing assets. Ironically, this type of rebalancing actually forces you to buy low and sell high. Periodically rebalancing your portfolio to match your desired risk tolerance is a sound practice regardless of the market conditions. One approach is to set a specific time each year to schedule an appointment to review your portfolio and determine if adjustments                 are appropriate.
