First Look credit unions are narrowing the gap between share and loan growth. Share growth has outpaced loan growth considerably over the last 21 months, especially during 2001, causing the loan to share ratio to drop significantly. However, over the last six months, the First Look credit unions' loan to share ratio declined only 7 basis points, as the discrepancy between the two rates shrunk throughout 2002.
