The January 2017 edition of CUNA Economic Update is now available. Sponsored by CUNA CFO Council, this month’s edition is hosted by Mike Schenk, CUNA vice president of economics and statistics, and covers CUNA’s most recent forecasts for 2017, which offer a slightly improved outlook for growth and credit union operating results.
“By all indications, credit unions are poised to have a strong 2017,” said Schenk. “When you combine strong demand, a labor market at full employment and record consumer confidence, it adds up to a favorable set of conditions for credit unions. We project strong membership growth, asset quality and loan growth throughout the movement.”
