Credit union loans outstanding grew 0.8% in June and 2% during the first half of 2013. Fixed-rate first mortgages led loan growth, rising 1.7%, followed by used-auto loans (1.6%), new-auto loans (1.5%), unsecured personal loans (1.2%), and credit card loans (1%). Adjustable-rate mortgages, home-equity loans and other mortgages declined 1.4%, 1.1%, and 0.7%, respectively.
