QUICK TAKE: Credit Unions Attracting More High-Value Members

These members will increase lending volumes in the coming years.

After reaching a low point in 2012, credit unions' decades-long trend of declining rates of peak borrowers (members ages 25 to 44) and future borrowers (members ages 18 to 24) continues to turn.

Credit unions attracted 5 million more of these high-value members from 2012 through November 2015.

This membership shift—along with the improving U.S. economic outlook—stands to increase lending volume in the coming years.

JON HALLER is CUNA's director of corporate and market research. You can learn more about credit union member demographics in CUNA's National Member & Nonmember Survey Results.
