Federally insured credit unions reported net income growth of $11.3 billion, or 134.9%, over the year ending in the first quarter of 2021, according to the latest financial performance data released by NCUA.
The increase in net income was due in large part to strong growth in other operating income and a decline in the provisioning for loan, lease, and credit loss expenses. Insured shares and deposits rose $286 billion, or 22.4 percent, to $1.56 trillion over the same period.
