August 2018

  • Credit union loan balances rose 1.3% in June, faster than the 1.1% pace reported in June 2017. 
    Credit union savings balances grew 5.6% during the 12 months ending in June, slower than the 6.1% average annual growth rate recorded during the last 10 years due to the falling national savings rate.
