Credit Union Trends Report

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.

June 2018

  • Year-over-year, the number of credit unions declined by 233, more than the 178 lost in the 12 months ending in April 2017. 
  • Credit union loan balances rose 1.1% in April, greater than the 0.9% pace reported in April 2017 and 3.4% year-to-date.  
  • Credit union return-on-asset ratios averaged 0.9% in the first quarter of 2018, above the 0.71% reported in the first quarter of 2017, due to NCUA’s $736 million Stabilization Fund dividend distribution.
