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.

September 2014
  • Credit union assets rose 0.3% in July, not because of a rise in deposits, which actually fell -0.1%, but because borrowings rose 12% and capital grew 0.4%.
  • Credit union memberships climbed to 100.5 million in July 2014, a typically strong month for membership growth, as 370,000 more Americans decided to avail themselves of the quality products and services offered by the nation’s credit unions.
  • The credit union system’s annualized return-on-asset ratio was 0.83% in the second quarter, according to NCUA call report data, similar to the 0.84% reported in the second quarter of 2013.
