2019 Q1 Press Release

Rogue Credit Union Closes Q1 With Steady Growth

Medford, OR – Rogue Credit Union announced financial results for the first quarter of 2019. Rogue’s growth remained steady in key categories. Rogue’s total assets grew at an annualized rate of 17.58%, and the credit union’s Return on Assets grew to 1.62%. Rogue has continued to experience membership growth above industry average, growing to serve over 137,000 members across Southern Oregon. 

Rogue’s loan growth has slowed when compared to Q1 2018. The dip in loan growth is a reflection of the credit union’s decision to sell a portion of its auto loan portfolio. This sale had no impact to Rogue’s members and is a common investment practice in the financial services industry. 

“Rogue Credit Union continues to be a financially strong and stable choice for Southern Oregon,” said President/CEO Gene Pelham. “The credit union is growing and here to serve our communities.”
