Total loans outstanding in federally insured credit unions increased $136 billion, or 11.7%, over the year ending in the first quarter of 2022, to $1.30 trillion, according to the latest financial performance data released by NCUA. Total assets rose by $169 billion, or 8.7%, to $2.12 trillion, over the same time period.
Insured shares and deposits rose $125 billion, or 8.0%, to $1.69 trillion, from one year earlier.
“Overall, federally insured credit unions continued to perform well in the first quarter of 2022,” said NCUA Chairman Todd Harper. “Lending remained strong, and we continued to see low delinquency and charge-off rates. That said, ongoing supply chain disruptions, rising interest rates, inflationary pressures, and geopolitical turmoil will likely combine to lower earnings, loan growth, and credit quality in the months ahead. Credit unions, therefore, must remain nimble to navigate through this challenging economic environment.”
