Better banking isn’t achieved in a year, or evenin a decade – it’s built upon generations ofcontinuous improvements to our products and44,535members enrolledin Wescom ExpressViewservices, commitment to communities, andattention to member service.In 2016, we increased our membership,855 new social mediafollowersenhanced accessibility, heightened our brandawareness, and recorded growth in loans byfocusing on our founding objective of 1.9billionpeople helping loansto membersIn the following pages, you’ll learn howWescom continues to grow as a financialinstitution while offering products and services12,983for every stage of our members’ members1

We’re pleased to inform you that Wescom turned in a positive performance, posting net earnings of more than 22 million in 2016.This performance can be attributed to several key factors including enhanced security, increased involvement inour communities, and loan growth.Keeping our members’ account information safe is our priority, which is why we added new Account Alerts to helpmembers keep track of their finances and issued chip cards to improve the security of members’ transactions andhelp prevent fraudulent activity. In 2016 we reported a 47 percent decrease in the number of Check Cards andCredit Cards affected by external data breaches.In 2016 we helped more members qualify for Signature Membership by adding the “Student” and “Length ofMembership” relationships, which recognize members in various stages of life. Based on these additions, and anoverall deepening of relationships with our members, we recorded a seven percent increase in the number ofSignature Members. Our continuous efforts to add value to the overall member experience was validated by ourmembers’ feedback through our Member Experience Survey, which produced a score of 84 percent. This score isbased on an average of six categories reflecting the member’s experience with us including Net Promoter Score(a widely used measure of members who say they would recommend Wescom to others), experience, convenience,expectations, individual value, and comparative value.As technology becomes more and more integrated in our members’ everyday lives, we continued to streamlinetheir mobile and online banking experience with us to remain competitive in today’s market. In 2016 we completedupgrades to our Wescom Mobile Banking Apps: Wescom Express View for Apple devices, which allows membersto quickly check their account balances and recent history without logging in, and fingerprint login for Android devices. Additionally, we made eStatements available on the Mobile Banking Apps and introduced a simplified wayto access mortgage eStatements in eBranch.Connecting with our communities continued to be at the forefront of how we engage with potential new members. Asthe Official Financial Institution for UCLA Athletics and the Rose Bowl Stadium, and through our increased deploymentof Big Blue – the Wescom Mobile Branch – and participation in more than 50 unique community events, we were ableto increase brand awareness and help more communities throughout Southern California experience the Wescomdifference. This contributed to a more than six percent increase in new members.We also saw loan growth in 2016 as we offered lending options to fit members’ needs and budgets, hostedseminars to help our members better understand the lending options available to them, and maintained competitiveinterest rates. These factors helped more members choose Wescom for all aspects of their lending needs includingauto, home, and lines of credit. We were pleased to record an 18 percent increase in auto loans and a 19 percentincrease in first mortgages.As we continue to serve our members in 2017, we will not only think about how our products and services willbenefit them now, but also how their relationships with us will strengthen our membership for years to come. Throughincreased focus on all generations of members, additional financial education resources to guide all membersthrough their financial journey with us, and heightened commitment to our communities, we look forward to a yearof building stronger relationships and investing in the future of Wescom.Virginia C.
