Florida credit unions saw steady growth in the first quarter of 2015, according to data collected by the League of Southeastern Credit Unions & Affiliates. Credit unions in the Sunshine State added 90,000 members — going over the five million mark — and $2 billion in new assets in Q1.
In the Jacksonville market, that total broke down to:
$360 million in new assets
9,000 new members
$139 million in new loans ($68 million in autos; $33 million in used autos; $45 million in first mortgages; $13 million in small business loans)
“Passing the five million member mark in Florida is a significant milestone,” LSCU & Affiliates President/CEO Patrick La Pine said in a statement. “Florida now has the fourth most [credit union] members in the country.”
