Financial Performance

12 months to 31st December 2014

In 2014 the Society achieved a new record level of total assests of £138 million, an increase of 10.61% (2013: 13.73%) . The Society saw record gross lending of £23.1m (2013 £18.4m), with net lending increase to £13.8m .In addition, there was an increase in savings balances to £129.1 (2013: £116.6m). 

Savings increased by 10.72% (14.36% in 2013) from £116.60m to £129.1m.  Mortgage lending increased by 9.91% (7.64% in 2013). Provisions made against possible losses were increased to £257,000 (248,000 in 2013) as a prudent measure against difficult trading times.

Overall net profit was up 43.28% on the previous year at £576,000 (2013 £402,000). Profit before tax rose by 44.68% from £517,000 in 2013 to £748,000 in 2014.

The Society operates with a very low margin between savings and borrowing rates in order to deliver value to both borrowers and savers.

Balance sheet summary and solvency indicators

The balance sheet of a business gives you a picture of everything the business owns. It shows you all the cash the business has received and what it has done with it. Read more

Solvency indicators are designed to show you the most important factors affecting the amount of cash the business has available. Ethex shows different indicators according to whether the business is a trading business, (buying and selling goods), or a financial business, (taking money and lending or investing it on). Read more

Returns and value

Important note

Returns and value indicators are not shown because Ecology does not currently have shareholders. Ecology's members are sometimes referred to as shareholders, but they do not share in the risks of the business and so cannot be regarded as equity shareholders in the formal sense.
