Credit Unions In All 50 States Posted Positive ROA
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Through the third quarter of 2012, credit unions in every state posted a positive ROA. This is a strong turnaround from a few years ago when the housing crisis and recession hit credit unions in several states, causing them to post a negative ROA.
“This increased ROA will allow credit unions to continue to build their institutions to serve more members — new as well as current — better and allow them to give back some of these earnings in the form of patronage dividends later in 2012 and into 2013,” says Jay Johnson, executive vice president of Callahan & Associates.
