Palo Alto, Calif. (PRWEB) June 16, 2008
Addison Avenue, one of the nation's most innovative credit unions, launches The Addison Café--a new online branch created to meet the financial needs of Generation Y. At The Addison Café, members can apply for student and auto loans, mortgages, checking accounts, Visa cards and of course learn more from experts and each other through the Addison Café Blog.
"The Addison Café was created to speak directly to Gen Y," said Benson Porter, CEO of Addison Avenue. "It gives them an online place to find valuable banking information and product solutions that can meet their long and short term financial needs. We also launched a blog to initiate a two-way conversation with our members."
According to financial research firm Javelin, Gen Y holds huge potential for profit growth over the next ten years as the incomes of these 20-somethings steadily increase. The Addison Café was created to help young adults start off their careers on the right foot, with high-level financial planning services that will help them pay off student loans, buy their first homes, and start saving for a profitable retirement.
While Gen Y is eager to learn, getting them really engaged is vital to countering their notoriously short attention spans. At Addison Avenue's brand-new blog, members and potential members can connect with customers and employees on industry topics and share practical advice. The Addison Café blog provides insight into finance, investing and the economy in a fun, conversational and engaging way.
