Tech CU History
Innovation is at the heart of what we do.
Tech CU began with a group of forward-thinking employees at Fairchild Camera and Instrument Semiconductor Division (a pioneer in technology innovation) who believed their money could be handled in a better way. Over 60 years ago, they formed Tech CU — a credit union solely dedicated to the financial success of its members — and owned by the people it served.
What started with a few thousand dollars and a couple of accounts in the Bay Area has evolved into a national presence, making us one of the 100 largest credit unions in the US. And no matter how large we have grown, we remain focused on meeting our members' needs with superior products and services. Having had a “front-row seat” to some of the world’s greatest technological advances, we continue to support the entrepreneurial spirit, diverse cultures, and unique needs of the high-tech industry, while maintaining strong liquidity and an exceptionally high capitalization ratio.
Today, Tech CU provides a full array of financial products and services to over 155,000 members including employees from the tech ecosystem— such as Cadence, Applied Materials, Cisco, Marvell, PayPal, Oracle, Broadcom, Nvidia, and Facebook, to name a few.
With more than $4 billion in assets under management and ten full-service branches in the Bay Area, we have grown and thrived for more than 60 years — establishing ourselves as a financial services leader that consistently achieves high marks for our customer satisfaction.
