Credit Unions: Financial Sustainability and Scale
In this report, we define credit unions’ financial sustainability as their being able to: (1) offer attractive terms and interest rates indefinitely for a broad range of financial products, (2) remain relevant in the financial lives of their members, and of Americans as a whole, by maintaining constant, or growing, market shares, and (3) maintain capital per asset ratios that are sufficiently high to withstand periodic shocks, such as economy-wide increases in loan losses.
Report #595 | | MembersThis marks the second year of the Credit Union Innovation Success Study. It is part of a broader six-year effort—the American Innovation Index™—that measures innovation in the US economy by quantifying the experiences of the customers from over 200 brands.
