Auto lending is trending upward again and credit unions have great opportunities to grow their auto portfolios. This partnership provides LEVERAGE clients with a trusted name in auto lending.

New and used auto lending has long been the bread and butter for credit unions. As the economy is bouncing back, credit unions are making more new and used auto loans. In 2013, credit unions collectively saw a four-percent growth rate in new auto loans and a three-percent jump in used auto loans.
