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.

July 2016
  • Credit union loan balances rose 1.0% in May, faster than the 0.9% pace reported in May 2015.
  • Memberships are up 4.3% during the past year due to robust demand for credit, solid job growth and credit unions having comparatively lower fees and loan interest rates.
  • With loans growing faster than savings the credit union average loan-to-savings ratio reached 77.6% in May, above the 74.8% reported one year earlier.
