Introduction

The Credit Union Trends Report is a monthly "pulse check" on the state of the credit union marketplace, often placed in a historical context. The report is published and distributed by Steven Rick from CUNA Mutual Group. View Steven's biography.

August 2014
  • Credit union memberships broke the 100 million milestone in June as 274,000 more Americans joined the not-for-profit, member-owned, financial-cooperative movement.
  • Credit union lending this year is growing at twice the pace set in 2013 due to strong auto, adjustable-rate mortgage and member business lending.
  • Credit unions of all asset sizes are now reporting positive loan growth, even though most growth still resides in the larger asset size categories.
