LANGLEY, B.C. – First West Credit Union said Wednesday its membership and assets each grew by more than seven per cent last year.

British Columbia’s third-largest credit union said its membership grew by more than eight per cent, and its total assets were $ 5.46 billion, a 7.4 per cent increase over 2010.

Net interest income was $ 126 million, down from $ 129 million in 2010. As a percentage of average assets, net interest income was 2.39 per cent in 2011.

“Over the past year, the First West team achieved some great successes,” said CEO Launi Skinner.
