Area credit unions keep same ratings

Area credit unions keep same ratings

No area credit unions were upgraded or downgraded in BauerFinancial's latest ratings, based on regulatory data from June 30.

The 22 area credit unions rated by BauerFinancial retained the same ratings they had from the quarter that ended March 31.

Of those credit unions, 10 received superior ratings, eight got excellent ratings and two received adequate ratings.

Seven other credit unions were not rated, either because they are too small or because they are insured privately, rather than by the National Credit Union Administration.

BauerFinancial bases its ratings on capital ratios, profitability trends, levels of delinquent loans, charge-offs and repossessed assets, liquidity, historical data and supervisory actions by regulatory agencies.

Here are BauerFinancial's ratings for area credit unions based on June 30 data:
