Highlights include recognition as BEST Credit Union by The San Diego Union-Tribune, Uptown News, Downtown News and Mission Times Courier

SDCCU releases positive second quarter financial results for 2016.

SDCCU reported that return on assets remains strong at 1.38 percent year-to-date through June 2016.  Additionally, SDCCU’s customer base continues to grow at more than 10.28 percent over the same time period in 2015. This impressive growth rate is more than two times higher than the year-over-year national growth for all credit unions based on a growth estimate from CUNA (Credit Union National Association) for June 2016.

“It was a solid first half of 2016 with continued progress in performance and growth for SDCCU,” said SDCCU President and CEO Teresa Halleck. “In addition to strong financial performance, SDCCU continues to see growth in new customers. Much of the credit union’s success is due to a continued focus on providing exceptional customer service while being a market leader, offering breakthrough banking products to meet the diverse needs of customers. We will continue to remain focused on being a market innovator while strategically managing costs.”

SDCCU’s net-worth-to-assets ratio for the second quarter was 13.83 percent, well above the 7 percent minimum capital level required for credit unions to be regarded as “well-capitalized” as specified by the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). The NCUA is an independent federal agency that charters and supervises federal credit unions and insures savings in federal and most state-chartered credit unions in the U.S.
