A+ FCU Reaches $1B in Loan Balances
Thursday, August 24, 2017 7:00 AM

On June 14, A+ Federal Credit Union reached $1 billion in loan balances. A+FCU's loan portfolio has grown 16 percent, annualized year to date, as of June 30, 2017.

Kerry A.S. Parker, A+FCU CEO, said of the milestone, "Reaching $1 billion in loans is a great testament of our members' faith in us to serve their financial needs. It is also a demonstration of the commitment that our entire team has to providing both exceptional service and extraordinary value to our members."

The increase in loan volume has come from auto lending, mortgage lending, and commercial lending. A+FCU anticipates strong double-digit growth through 2018, despite challenges in the lending industry, which includes competition from FinTech companies and a slowdown in auto sales.

A+FCU reports it's making it easier for members to move all of their lending business to the credit union and rewarding them for doing so.

"We launched a new auto loan and mortgage program that reduces the member's loan rate with no fees when they move their loan to the credit union," noted A+FCU Chief Lending Officer John Demmler.

Parker added, "We want our members to think of us first when they consider buying a new home or upgrading with a new auto purchase, because together we're stronger."
