One credit union gets downgraded in rating
One area credit union was downgraded in BauerFinancial's latest ratings, based on regulatory data from Sept. 30.
Lauhoff Employees Credit Union in Danville, which had been rated 5-star ("superior") in the previous quarter's ratings, was downgraded to 4-star ("excellent") in the latest ratings.
The other 19 area credit unions rated by BauerFinancial retained their ratings from the quarter that ended June 30.
Eight other area 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.
One credit union has disappeared from the list. Danville Consolidated Credit Union merged into the much larger Landmark Credit Union on Sept. 3.
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.
