SAN DIEGO, CA (November 13, 2017)San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, releases positive third quarter financial results for 2017. SDCCU reported that total assets rose 6.06 percent from the end of third quarter 2016 to $8.2 billion at the end of September 2017 and return on assets remains strong at 1.20 percent. Year-over-year loan growth is at 10.58 percent. Additionally, SDCCU’s customer base continues to grow at 10.43 percent over the same time period in 2016, surpassing 365,000 customers in Q3 2017.

“With SDCCU’s continued success and progress, it’s evident that customers are responding positively to our commitment to providing breakthrough banking products and exceptional customer service,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “We remain focused on improving the financial health of individuals in the communities we serve by providing sound financial services.”

The net-worth-to-assets ratio for the third quarter was 14.29 percent, well above the 7 percent minimum capital level for credit unions regarded as “well-capitalized,” as specified by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the independent federal agency that charters and supervises federal credit unions and insures savings in federal and most state-chartered credit unions in the U.S.

SDCCU has experienced several highlights so far this year. SDCCU was named San Diego’s BEST Credit Union for the 18th consecutive year by readers of The San Diego Union-Tribune as well as BEST Auto Loan Provider, BEST Financial Planner and BEST Mortgage Provider. The credit union set its fifth and sixth Guinness World Records® titles for the most paper collected in a 24-hour-period and most paper shredded in eight hours —898,931 pounds of paper were collected at the annual SDCCU Super Shred Event. The event also raised over $4,000 for SDCCU Stuff the Bus, a program launched in partnership with the San Diego County Office of Education and iHeartMedia radio stations, Star 94.1, Channel 933, JAM’N 95.7 and KOGO AM 600 benefiting thousands of homeless students in San Diego.
