Ohio CUs' 3Q financials post record loans
COLUMBUS, Ohio (1/11/13)--Ohio credit unions posted record results in loan originations in the first three quarters of 2012, according to the most recent Ohio Credit Union Quarterly Performance Summary published by the Ohio Credit Union League.

The credit unions also increased their core deposit balances and saw robust membership growth (eLumination Newsletter Jan. 9).

"The Ohio membership growth experience is something we're seeing at the national level as well--consumers (both borrowers and savers) are moving to credit unions--voting with their feet and discovering that credit unions are the best choice for their financial services," Mike Schenk, vice president of economics and statistics at the Credit Union National Association, told News Now

"In the year ending September 2012, credit union memberships grew by 2.5 million--a 2.7% rate of growth," he added. "The percentage increase compares to a U.S. population growth rate of a bit less than 1% over the same period. Credit union membership growth--both in absolute and percentage terms--is the fastest we've seen in roughly 15 years."

Ohio credit unions' financial performance was in line with, or better than, many national trends, the league said. They originated more than $1.6 billion in first mortgages, a 68.8% increase over mortgages in the first nine months of 2011, helping drive total loan originations up 33.5%.

Core deposits drove shares' increase at a faster rate than the national average, with a 9.6% annual increase in regular savings accounts, the league added.

Ohio membership continued to increase, with the addition of more than 39,000 members in 12 months.
