MADISON, Wis. (9/3/13)--Credit union loans outstanding grew in July and credit  union savings balances declined, according to the Credit Union National Association's monthly  sample of credit unions.

Unsecured personal loans rose 2.1%, followed by new-auto loans (1.8%), used-auto loans (1.6%), fixed-rate mortgages (1.3%), credit card loans (1.2%), and adjustable-rate mortgages (0.9%). Other mortgages and home-equity loans declined 1.1% and 0.1%, respectively.

Regarding asset quality, credit unions' 60-plus-day delinquency rate remained at 1% during the past six months.
 
With loan growth outpacing savings growth in July, the loan-to-savings ratio increased one percentage point--to 68.5% from 67.5% in June. The liquidity ratio--the ratio of surplus funds maturing in less than one year to borrowings plus other liabilities--was 18% in July.
 
Total credit union membership grew 0.4% during July to 98 million.
 
The movement's overall capital-to-asset ratios remained at 10%. The total dollar amount of capital is $111 billion.
