WINNIPEG, Manitoba--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Conquest Planning Inc. (“Conquest”), a technology platform modernizing financial planning with customized and convenient advice, today announced an integration with Vancity, Canada's largest community credit union. With assets exceeding $34 billion, including assets under administration, Vancity is the first credit union to join forces with Conquest. As a result of this partnership, Conquest will integrate its cutting-edge digital financial planning tools into Vancity's services, potentially extending this valuable resource to its more than 560,000 members.
