A 10-year look back at secondary capital

first_imgInterest in secondary capital is growing, and new strategies, larger loans, and NCUA decisions are changing the way credit unions deploy it.Since the 1990s, the federal government has allowed low-income credit unions (LICUs) to accept non-member deposits and secondary capital, which gives credit unions a shot to their net worth and makes available new avenues to expand loan portfolios, assets, and services.More than 40% of all credit unions held a low-income designation at midyear; however, only 70 reported using secondary capital.
