Filene Research Institute is an independent consumer finance think and do tank based in Madison, Wisconsin. It is dedicated to scientific and thoughtful analysis about issues vital to the future of credit unions and consumer finance. Filene has conducted a lot of research on Millennial financial capability and financial choices. Each year Filene chooses a small number of unique programs grounded in research to implement and test with credit unions.
From mid-2014 to mid-2016 we worked with the Filene Research Institute to test It's a Money Thing. Ten credit unions from the United States and Canada participated in an It’s a Money Thing pilot. Business results and young adult engagement were very positive.
