4Q 2013 Trends

As of December 2013, the nation's 6,687 credit unions held $1.08 trillion in assets, up 3.9% from the previous December. They held over $653 billion in loans backed with over $120 billion in capital. Here are other notable year-end trends:

  • Loans: Credit unions originated $351B in loans during 2013, surpassing the record volume in 2012 by 6.2%. Key drivers of this increase were strong mortgage originations and higher consumer loan originations versus 2012.
  • Members: Total membership rose by nearly 2.4 million during the past twelve months, an annual rate of 2.5%.
  • Checking: Members opened nearly 2.4M checking accounts during the past 12 months, indicating continued growth in primary financial relationships.
  • Core Deposits: Share balances increased 3.7% annually, led by continued strong growth in checking account and regular share balances.
  • The Bottom Line: Revenue declined from 2012 due to lower interest income, playing a part in a 4.4% decrease in net income after stabilization expenses.
