Shell Employees Credit Union Phone Number: 403 718 7770
We are a co-operative financial institution, established by Shell employees, for Shell employees. This means that individuals who bank with us are not only customers – they’re members.
All of our members own a portion of the Credit Union, which means that they have a say in how we do things. In addition to this, our success is all of our members’ success, and we show this by returning a portion of our profits back to our members each year.
Contrary to our name, banking privileges with the Shell Employees’ Credit Union are not exclusive to Shell employees only. If you’re a Shell contractor, retiree, or are a family or friend of a Shell employee, we will welcome you with open arms! Not only that, but once you’re a member, you can spread the love by referring your family and friends to us.
Are you ready to bank with a financial institution who puts YOUR needs first?
Shell Employees’ Credit Union came about as a result of a tight credit market in the 1950’s. During this time, banks were unwilling to lend without collateral, which left many individuals no choice but to turn to finance companies who charged exhorbitant rates for unsecured loans.
To address this, 20 Shell employees banded together to form the Shell Employees’ Credit Union (SECU). Their ethos was to provide services to the community of Shell employees, during a time when no one else was willing to help out. In the beginning, our operations were run solely by volunteers working out of the Calgary and Edmonton Shell offices, up until 1966 when our very first employee was officially hired.
Over the years, SECU has flourished into the full-service financial institution that it is today, offering deposit, lending, and wealth management services. With over 6000 members worldwide, offices in Calgary and Fort Saskatchewan, and over $290 millon in assets – SECU has truly come a long way.
No longer strictly limited to employees of Shell, our membership is now also open to contractors, retirees, and referrals of current members. Yet despite all the changes we’ve gone through in our over 60 years of existence – one thing remains the same: our raison d’etre continues to be serving the unique needs of the Shell community, including their family and friends, not only in times of abundance but also in times of need.
