April 2019 CU Trends Report from CUNA Mutual Group Now Available

The April 2019 Credit Union Trends Report is now available.

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.

April 2019 (February 2019 data):

  • Credit union loan balances rose 0.1% in February, slower than the 0.2% pace reported in February 2018, and 8.6% during the last 12 months. 
  • Credit union loan delinquency rates fell to 0.69% in February, below the long-run “natural rate” average of 0.75%.  
  • With loan balances growing faster than savings, credit union liquidity is tightening up as the credit union average loan-to-savings ratio reached 84.1%, up from 82.2% in February 2018.
