Third quarter 2018 shows continued growth and success for San Diego County Credit Union
SDCCU is now proudly serving more than 400,000 customers in San Diego, Orange and Riverside counties
SAN DIEGO, CA (November 30, 2018) — San Diego County Credit Union® (SDCCU®), San Diego’s largest locally-owned financial institution, released positive third quarter financial results for 2018. SDCCU reported that total assets rose nearly 2.66 percent from the end of third quarter 2017 to $8.4 billion at the end of September 2018 and return on assets remains strong at 1.29 percent. Year-over-year loan growth is at more than 6.2 percent. Additionally, SDCCU’s customer base continued to grow at over 9 percent over the same time period in 2017, surpassing 400,000 customers in Q3 2018.
“We are thrilled to report SDCCU’s continued positive growth in Q3,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck Campbell. “This continual growth is fueled by SDCCU’s focus on our customers and the emphasis put 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 15.22 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 19th 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 collected more than 500,000 pounds of paper at the annual SDCCU Super Shred Event. The event also raised over $5,800 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 93.3, JAM’N 95.7 and KOGO AM 600 benefiting thousands of homeless students in San Diego. Overall, SDCCU Stuff the Bus yielded nearly 6,000 filled backpacks and 230,000 school supplies to help set local students up for success.
