The proposals include the removal of a cap on the amount of long-term lending an individual branch can make. Credit unions would instead have home mortgage and commercial lending limited, on a tiered basis, by the total value of the assets it holds. "The proposals support diversificiation in credit union loan portfolios," the Central Bank said in a statement. "Revisions would allow those credit unions with sufficient financial strength, competence and capability, to undertake additional home mortgage and commercial lending."
