Business Lending’s Crucial Role

Credit unions are lending to businesses at a record pace, a trend which is helping boost local economies, says Callahan & Associates’ analyst Andrew Bolton.


Andrew Bolton, credit union industry analyst with Callahan & Associates, explains credit unions’ stellar year in business lending and its impact on economic growth. MBL originations increased 10.5% year-over-year to $11.9 billion, according to financial reports from 7,091 FirstLook credit unions. The improving economy and strong demand at credit unions points to another strong year for business lending in 2012.
