MADISON, Wis., and WASHINGTON (July 11, 2017) – CUNA has released the June 2017 edition of the CUNA Economic Update, sponsored by CUNA CFO Council. CUNA Chief Policy Officer Bill Hampel hosts the update, which provides a general overview of where the economy stands going into the summer.

“It’s a complicated picture, but all in all things look positive for credit unions,” said Hampel. “As interest rates rise, credit unions’ net interest income is also likely to rise, and—assuming steady, controlled economic growth—the movement should be poised to continue thriving despite inflationary changes and uncertainty in Washington.”

Inflation is a main focus of the update, with fresh data on consumer price inflation and analysis of recent changes in the treasury yield curve. Additionally, the update contains a comprehensive breakdown of recent credit union net income results, including interest yield on asset, fee income and loan loss provision trends.
