2Q 2012 Trends

At the end of the first quarter of 2012, the nation's 7,105 credit unions held just over $1 trillion in assets, up 7% from one year ago. They held almost $590 billion in loans backed with more than $112.5 billion in capital. Here are more 2Q Trends to Remember:

  • Loans: Credit unions originated $156.7B in loans in the first half of 2012, a 29% increase over 2011 levels. This year marks the highest first quarter , second quarter, and first half on record for the industry. A high volume of first mortgage originations totaling $56.3B resulted in strong national mortgage market share for the credit union industry.
  • Members: Total membership rose by over 2.0M in the past twelve months, an annual rate of 2.3%.
  • Checking: Driven by continued media attention and high rates of member growth, credit unions posted a record increase in the number of new checking accounts. Members opened 2.9M checking accounts in the past twelve months ended June 30.
  • Core Deposits: Share balances increased 7.0% over the last 12 months, led by a 16% increase in share draft balances.
  • Asset Quality: Delinquency decreased 24 basis points from March to 1.21%. Part of this strong decline is due to changes in TDR accounting. Call report guidelines now reflect practices in‐line with GAAP and other regulators as TDRs are no longer required to be reported as delinquent upon restructuring the loan.
  • The Bottom Line: Net income is up 18% annually and a pre‐assessment ROA of 90 basis points is the highest since 2005.
