Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union, doing business locally as Liberty Financial, has topped Investopedia’s list of the best credit unions in the country in one category.

And in addition to its recognition, Liberty Financial also shared details of its forthcoming Crestwood branch location, which is being built at 6419 Ky. 146, near South Oldham High School.

Investopedia is an American financial website based out of New York City offering financial and investment dictionaries, advice, reviews, ratings and comparisons of various financial products. On Feb. 12, the online publication posted a ranking of the best credit unions in the country for 2021 in six different categories: best overall, best for checking, best for a savings account, best for CDs, best for military individuals and families, and best if you have kids.

While Evansville Teachers Federal Credit Union is based out of Evansville, Indiana, and would typically be outside of our coverage area, the credit union does business locally, and in its Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Middle Tennessee markets, as Liberty Financial following its acquisition in 2016.  Click here to read more from Business First.
