In 2007, investments less than one year made up 49.6% of the investment portfolio. Five years later, that segment has dropped 5% to 44.6%, as credit unions try to achieve better returns on their investments by increasing maturities. Investments with maturities between 3-5 years more than doubled their share of the portfolio, increasing from 8.3% in 2007 to 17.1% in 2012. Although investments greater than 10 years increased 49 basis points from 2007, they still only make up 1.7% of total investments. While credit unions are trying to increase their returns, the additional reward on securities of that maturity is minimal and is not enough to entice credit unions to lock up their money for such a long period of time.
