CuneXus Study Reports Improved Loan Portfolio Growth for Participating Credit Unions

More than 17% increase in loans granted in a year following implementation, per analysis


Madison, Wis. – May 3, 2021 – CuneXus, the first digital storefront for financial institution’s customers and members, found that credit unions experienced a 17.3% increase in average number of loans granted over a 12-month period after implementing its product. This comes from an analysis to uncover the statistically significant impact CuneXus’ products have on participating credit union operations/financials versus non-participant peers. The increase in loans spiked especially higher than industry averages in Q2 of 2020; as the credit union industry average fell with the pandemic, personal and targeted offers from CuneXus accelerated. Analysis found that the CuneXus alignment had the strongest impact within Home Equity Lines of Credit and unsecured loan growth for participating credit unions. Credit cards, new and used auto loan growth increased at a steady rate during this same time, however, it is uncertain if CuneXus was an influencer or moderate supporter of this growth. Also, it appears that credit unions with greater than $2B+ experienced notably higher average performance rates than their smaller counterparts, the results may be attributed to more qualified members. “Partnering with CuneXus has given our credit union the ability to extend guaranteed loan offers to members in as little as 10 seconds,” said Jaynel Christensen, vice president of lending for Frankfort, Ky-based Commonwealth Credit Union. “An added benefit is the mobile borrowing experience that makes it easy for members to transact when and where it’s most comfortable for them.
