Overview of the Credit Union’s Performance Metrics


The chart above compares Amucu’s performance on three metrics to credit unions in its peer group and also shows the credit union’s performance on each metric in the prior year. These are some of the important measures for a credit union’s performance that we look at. If we take a look at Amucu’s return on assets – which is usually a good measure of how efficiently a company is using its assets to produce profits – we see that the credit union is above the average comparable credit union and also that over the past year ROA has improved substantially given the year over year change of 0.29%. Moving on to the credit union’s delinquency rate, which tells us how much of a credit union’s loan book is delinquent, the credit union is well above its peer group on this metric and compared with the prior year it has improved. Keep in mind that a higher delinquency rate indicates a lower performing loan book so a declining rate is a favorable trend. Finally, the net worth ratio for the credit union is 11.3% which is well above its peer group average of 9.7%. This metric has declined on a year over year basis and stood at 11.9% a year ago. Based on the NCUA guidelines, the credit union is considered to be well capitalized.


Ultimately, after considering all of the relevant factors we rate Amucu 2.9 out of 5.0, which is above average.
