CREDIT UNIONS @ SepteMBER 30, 2014


According to Callahan's FirstLook, industry assets have grown 5.1% since last September to reach $1.12 trillion. Credit unions hold more than $705 billion in loans backed by more than $128 billion in capital.

Here are other notable third quarter trends:

  • Loans: At 10.3%, year-over-year loan growth more than doubled the pace of deposit growth.
  • Members: Membership surpassed 100 million members. That's an increase of 3.1% from September 2013.
  • Relationships: More than half of the country's credit union members —  53.9% — have a credit union checking account. This is a sign members are using their credit union as their primary financial institution.
  • Share Growth: Share growth remained relatively steady. The quarter's 3.9% growth is down only slightly from 4.1% one year prior.
  • The Bottom Line: Strong long growth boosted loan income, which in turn caused total revenue to rise 2.6% annually. This is the first annual increase as of the third quarter since 2008.
