MADISON, WI (November 20, 2020) — The Credit Union Trends Report is a monthly “pulse check” on the state of the credit union marketplace, often placed in a historical context. The report includes data from two months prior and is published and distributed by Steven Rick from CUNA Mutual Group.

November 2020 (September 2020 data)

  • Credit union loan balances rose 0.5% in September, slower than the 0.6% pace reported in September 2019.
  • Credit union savings balances rose a strong 18.3% during the last 12 months due to $1,200 stimulus checks, COVID-19 induced uncertainty, falling gasoline purchases, aging demographics and fears of recession.
  • The credit union system’s capital-to-asset ratio fell to 10.5% in September, down from 11.3% in September 2019 due to a surge in deposits and assets and a slowdown in earnings.
