Credit union interest rates on loans

Most U.S. credit cards are quoted in terms of nominal annual percentage rate (APR) compounded daily, or sometimes (and especially formerly) monthly, which in either case is not the same as the effective annual rate (EAR). Despite the "annual" in APR, it is not necessarily a direct reference for the interest rate paid on a stable balance over one year.

In general, credit cards available to middle-class cardholders that range in credit limit from $1,000 to $30,000 calculate the finance charge by methods that are exactly equal to compound interest compounded daily, although the interest is not posted to the account until the end of the billing cycle. A high U.S. APR of 29.99% carries an effective annual rate of 34.96% for daily compounding and 34.48% for monthly compounding, given a year with 12 billing periods and 365 days.

To use the chart to make a loan, determine an expected rate of return on the investment (X) and add that to the expected loss rate from the chart. The sum is an approximation of the interest rate that should be contracted with the borrower in order to achieve the expected rate of return.

A credit union is a member-owned financial co-operative. These institutions are created and operated by their members and profits are shared amongst the owners.

Credit unions range in size from small, volunteer-only operations to large entities with thousands of members. The basic business model is that members pool their money in the bank in order to be able to loan money to each other and achieve these financial benefits.

As soon as you deposit funds into a credit union account, you become a partial owner and participate in the union's profitability. You have a vote in the credit union's board of directors and decisions surrounding the union. Credit unions are formed by large corporations and organizations for their employees and members. Profits are used to fund projects and services that will benefit the community and interests of its members. The goal is to better the community, not to make a profit, which means that credit unions fall under not for profit status.

These non-profit organisations have long been regarded as the preserve of low-paid families who would otherwise struggle to obtain a mortgage or bank account.

But the Government wants to change that image. Iain Duncan Smith, the Work and Pensions Secretary, told The Telegraph: "Credit unions can offer some of the best rates on the market for loans and dividends for your savings. But saving with a credit union can provide more than a financial return, as you will be investing in your local community.

"While credit unions help many people on low incomes to build savings and access affordable loans, their services are open to all. I'd encourage everyone to look at the accounts credit unions have on offer."
